Cuba to Accept Majority of Recommendations from UN Rights Council

HAVANA – Cuba will accept the majority of the 292 recommendations prepared in May during the UN Human Rights Council’s review of the situation on the Communist-ruled island, official media said on Thursday.

“Many of them (the recommendations) have already been fulfilled, they are in the process of implementation or form part of the country’s future priorities,” said the daily Juventud Rebelde.

“Just a minority group of these recommendations will not be admitted, which are politically biased, constructed on false bases and are incompatible with constitutional principles and the internal juridical order,” the newspaper said.

Cuba in May presented its report before the Human Rights Council during the first part of the process in which all UN member nations submit their policies, advances and pending tasks in that area to the evaluation of their peers.

Among the recommendations presented by several governments to Havana was the extension of an open and ongoing invitation to UN human rights experts, a request that the island accepted provided that the visit of those independent rapporteurs be “on a non-discriminatory basis.”

Numerous countries also asked Cuba to eliminate restrictions on the rights of expression and association and to guarantee that human rights defenders and independent journalists may engage in their activities.

Cuba will present its formal response to the recommendations during Friday’s session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva. EFE
