By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, the United States State Department announced visa restrictions on 28 Cuban officials, Reuters report.
The officials were reportedly implicated in a crackdown on peaceful protests in Cuba almost a year ago.
The visa restrictions would apply to high-ranking members of the Cuban Communist Party, officials say.
According to the report, party officials are being accused of setting policies that subjected hundreds of people involved in the July 11, 2021, protests to violent and unjust detentions and decades-long prison sentences.
Those demonstrations were the biggest anti-government protests seen in Cuba in decades.
