Cuban dissidents arrive in Prague to discuss human rights issues in Cuba

Eight Cuban dissidents and former political prisoners arrived in Prague on Sunday to meet politicians and other Czech personalities supporting human rights around the world. The Cubans will meet with former Czech president and dissident Vaclav Havel, Deputy Foreign Minister Pavel Vosalik, Senate Chairman Petr Pithart and members of the Czech Parliament. They were invited to Prague by the Czech humanitarian organisation People in Need, which has been supporting human rights activists fighting against the totalitarian Castro regime in Cuba. The dissidents, who now live in the United States, are expected to stay in the Czech capital until Saturday.
