Cuban dissident: Castro should be tried
WARSAW, Poland — A recently released Cuban dissident says Fidel Castro should face an international tribunal for alleged crimes against his own people.
Juan Carlos Herrera Acosta said Thursday that Cuba's prisons are "apocalyptic" places where innocent people are murdered. Acosta said he spent 12 years imprisoned in Cuba and was subjected to torture.
Acosta was part of a group of political prisoners released in August, following negotiations between Roman Catholic Church and Cuba's government. He is now exiled in Spain.
Acosta is urging Poland and other EU countries to put pressure on Cuba because of its poor human rights record.
He was in Warsaw at the invitation of Polish lawmakers. Poland is a former communist country that threw off communism 20 years ago.
