The list published in Cuba’s Official Gazette mentions 61 people and 20 organizations, including those involved in failed attacks against the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro (1926-2016), or individuals accused of promoting public disorder before and during provocations on July 11, 2021.
The Cuban Interior Ministry decided to include in the list people and entities with criminal investigations and wanted by Cuban authorities due to their involvement in the promotion, planning, organization and financing of terrorist acts, in the country or abroad, according to the Official Gazette, which includes the long list.
La Jornada added that the Cuban authorities base this decision on a resolution of the United Nations Security Council on the prevention and fight against terrorism and its financing, as well as on international law and the national Penal Code.
This is the first list of this nature published by Cuba since in 2021 the United States included the country in its blacklist of countries sponsoring terrorism again, severely tightening the economic sanctions to which Washington has subjected the island for more than six decades.
All of those singled out are living outside Cuba and most of the actions mentioned were orchestrated from U.S. territory, stated the Cuban authorities.
