Featured Diaz-Canel condemns harassment against Cuban doctors in Bolivia

The president of Cuba, Miguel Diaz-Canel, denounced late on Friday the harassment and mistreatment against Cuban doctors working in Bolivia, who will return to the island in the face of violent instigation against them.

In the name of no political ideology, hate cannot harm those who devote themselves to giving life and health to the humble, the Cuban president wrote in his Twitter account.

Diaz-Canel shared in another tweet the statement issued this Friday by the Cuban Foreign Ministry in which it calls to halt 'the exacerbation of irresponsible anti-Cuban expressions and hate.'

The document holds allegations against four Cuban doctors are false: Amparo Garcia, Idalberto Delgado, Ramón Alvarez and Alexander Torres, members of the Medical Brigade in El Alto, were illegally detained.

They were arrested on accusations of encouraging violent actions in Bolivia by the coup authorities.

Under these circumstances, the statement stresses, Cuba will immediately withdraw the members of the medical mission from Bolivia.

It also demands the release of these unfairly detained Health workers.
