Wrong on Cuba

I was nonplussed to read a statement by Peter Quinter, in the March 28 article, Miami trade lawyer predicts the end to Cuba embargo.

Quinter claims that the “rule of law exists in Cuba.” I’m sure that would surprise the Ladies in White, who were attacked and dispersed by government authorities on the day of President Obama’s visit. I’m certain it would surprise Guillermo Fariñas, a dissident who has been jailed on a number of occasions without due process of law. It would also surprise the seven people who were shot prior to their escape from Cuba recently and still wanted out so badly they continued their escape across dangerous waters.

Studies, from the the International Commission of Jurists to think tanks, including the Heritage Foundation and Freedomworks, show that there is no rule of law in Cuba.
