The US Coast Guard returns 36 irregular migrants to Cuba

Havana, Jul 4 (Prensa Latina) Cuban authorities received 36 Cuban citizens who participated in six illegal departures to the United States, returned by the US Coast Guard, local media reported on Sunday.

The groups were made up of two, four, five, five, nine, 11 and five people who returned to the country through Orozco Bay, Artemisa, according to information published by the Granma newspaper.

The departures took place along the northern coast of the provinces of Artemisa, Matanzas, Camaguey, Havana and Villa Clara, respectively.

According to a press release from the Ministry of the Interior, in the first of those groups, two citizens left Cuba on June 25 through Artemisa using a speedboat from the United States.

The remaining groups left the national territory aboard naval vessels, which lacked navigation conditions and rescue equipment, The Ministry indicated.

The group of nine people, meanwhile, was subjected to persuasive actions and accompaniment to the limit of Cuban territorial waters by a surface unit of Border Guard Troops.
