Cuban physician, recipient of U.S. presidential medal of freedom detained in Havana

Human rights activists on the island have alerted the Center for a Free Cuba that Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet was arrested by the political police this morning. He is a former political prisoner, a physician who is not allowed to practice, a follower of Mahatma Gandhi’s doctrines and the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

We are writing to you and other supporters of human rights around the world to urge you to ask President/General Raul Castro to immediately release him.
