Cuba: Highest Number of Political Arrests in Over One-Year

Tuesday, August 4, 2015
The Cuban Commission for Human Rights (CCHR) has documented 674 political arrests by the Castro regime during the month of July 2015.

This is the highest number of political arrest documented by the CCHR since June 2014.

These are only political arrests that have been thoroughly documented. Many more are suspected.

Last week, the Cuba Observatory for Human Rights had separately documented 630 political arrests.

In its report, the CCHR notes that "nothing indicates [these levels of political arrests] will change."

Yet, President Obama claims this is "what change looks like" in Cuba.
