Actualité - Cuba Slams US Subversion

Havana, May 7 - Manuel Hevia, director of the Historic Investigation Center of the department of State Security, said starting with the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, subversion attempts by the US have increased dramatically in Cuba.

The US Interests Section in Havana has boosted spying and preparation of internal counter-revolutionary groups, with over 540 US officials visiting Havana between 1998 and 2000. Of them, 30 percent were identified as suspected intelligence agents, Hevia stated.

According to the expert, the approval of the 1992 Torricelli Act by George Bush senior not only provoked hunger, lack of medicine, transportation and electricity, but encouraged massive flow of emigres to the US.

Between 1987 and 1994, Washington only granted seven percent of 160,000 visas agreed with Cuba, encouraging illegal exits along with the 1996 Cuban Adjustment Act that gave special privileges to the island s emigres.

The Revolution and President Fidel Castro have faced that adversity and still ensured health and education, as well as to a certain degree extracted the country from the "special period."

As a sign of revenge for that success, states the historian, Bush junior s fascist clan and allies have lashed out at five Cuban anti-terrorist fighters, unfairly imprisoned for nearly nine years.

At the same time the US exonerates confessed murderers like Luis Posada Carriles.
