By BBN Staff: Seven Cuban nationals who were on remand at the Belize Central Prison for entering Belize illegally were granted their freedom yesterday, following a civil suit by the Human Rights Commission of Belize (HRCB).
HRCB President Leo Bradley Jr. filed the civil suit against the Superintendent of Prisons, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Immigration, and The Attorney General, claiming that the constitutional rights of the Cubans had been violated because at the time of detention, authorities failed to communicate to them what offense had been committed in a language they could understand.
After considering the submissions, newly appointed Supreme Court Justice Patricia Farnese, ruled that the Cubans should be released.
The group of seven adults also came with two children on February 6, claiming to be seeking asylum. The children had been in the care of the Department of Human Services since the adults were detained, and the HRCB says it will ensure that the family is reunited.
