Nytt Cuba-nei til Sanner

For andre gang er Høyres nestleder, Jan Tore Sanner, blitt nektet visum til Cuba. – Det er trist at bare ukritiske politikere får slippe inn i landet, sier Jan Tore Sanner. Etter planen skulle Sanner reise til Cuba lørdag 10. april. Formålet med reisen var å gjøre seg bedre kjent med landet og utvide kontakten med det sivile samfunn og den demokratiske opposisjonen. Før påske avslo den Cubanske ambassaden en visumsøknad fra Sanner, men Sanner valgte å søke igjen etter å ha blitt invitert av den norske ambassaden i Havanna.

Norwegian MP denied visa to Cuba

Mr. Jan Tore Sanner, Norwegian MP and vice chairman of the Conservative Party (Høyre), was this week denied a visa to Cuba. Mr. Sanner was to visit Cuba in April to meet with representatives of Cuban civil society and the opposition, as well as Norwegian diplomats in the country.

At the forefront in the struggle for freedom and democracy in Cuba

Draft resolution EPP Summit, Brussels, 25 March 2010, CUBA:
Cuban democratic opposition: Due to the death of Orlando Zapata, we have witnessed a new propaganda campaign against the dissidents, who the Cuban regime describes as antisocial elements, mercenaries or common criminals. Unfortunately, these defamations sometimes find an echo with certain sectors of European citizenry. We wish to testify here to our admiration and respect for those democratic activists who, under exceptionally adverse conditions, work peacefully for the Rule of Law, pluralism and freedom in their country. Their civic courage, patriotism and democratic passion must not lead to ostracism, repudiation, prison or exile. That is why we commit ourselves to continuing to give them our support and solidarity.
