Cuba: 108 irregular migrants repatriated

Havana, Feb 1 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban Ministry of the Interior (Minint) on Wednesday reported the return of 108 irregular migrants who had left the country illegally by sea.

On Tuesday, an aircraft from the Cayman Islands arrived in Cuba with 20 people (15 men, three women and two minors), and the United States Coast Guard returned 50 migrants through the port of Orozco, in the western province of Artemisa.

Subsequently, 38 irregular migrants (30 men, seven women and one minor) were returned from the Bahamas by air.

The source pointed out that of the total number of people returned home, four were transferred to the investigative bodies for being alleged perpetrators of serious criminal acts, which were being investigated since before their illegal departures.

The three operations took place in accordance with bilateral migration agreements and with them the return actions carried out in the year amount to 23, with 1,901 people returned from the Cayman Islands, Bahamas, Mexico and the US Coast Guard Service.

Cuban authorities have reiterated their commitment to regular, safe and orderly emigration and insist on their warning about the danger and life-threatening conditions of illegal departures from the country by sea and the irresponsible involvement of minors, the information from the MININT stresses.
