    4 Foreigners jailed in Cuba for sexual abuse of children

    4 Foreigners jailed in Cuba for sexual abuse of children
    Published November 18, 2014 EFE

    Four foreign citizens – a Canadian, an Indian and two Italians – have
    been sentenced to prison in Cuba for the sexual abuse of children, while
    another two are awaiting trial for similar offenses, an official report
    released Tuesday said.

    Specifically, a Canadian has been sentenced to 13 years behind bars in
    Cuba for the sexual abuse of minors, an Indian was sentenced to 30 years
    for that crime plus drug trafficking, while the two Italians face 23 and
    25 years in prison, respectively, for murder and the corruption of minors.

    Details of the sentences were revealed in an official Cuban report about
    the fight against prostitution and other forms of sexual abuse in 2013,
    published Tuesday on the Web site of the Foreign Ministry.

    In the case of the foreigners, the document states that “they were
    proved to have sexual relations with minors in Cuba.”

    It adds that another two individuals, a Briton and a Spaniard, “are
    awaiting trial on charges of having sexual relations with minors.”

    In 2013, Cuba tried a total of 144 cases associated with crimes of child
    prostitution, sexual abuse and procuring, of which 13 showed “conduct
    characteristic of people trafficking,” for which they were sentenced to
    between 3 and 14 years in jail.

    “During 2013, there were no cases of the sale or trafficking of children
    for sexual purposes, and examples of child prostitution were minimal,”
    the report said.

    The Cuban government also said that the island “is not a destination,
    transit route or source of people trafficking, particularly for the
    sexual abuse of children, nor the base for criminal organizations
    engaging in those crimes. EFE
