NEWS ALERT: GLA Files Criminal Complaint in Uruguay for Use of Cuban Medical Brigades, Continued Exploitation of Forced Labor
On July 26, GLA counsel in Uruguay filed a criminal complaint with the Attorney General’s office regarding Uruguay’s continued exploitation of forced labor via Cuban medical brigades.
The U.S. Department of State recently published the 2021 Trafficking in Persons Report and urged governments worldwide to join the United States in improving our collective efforts to comprehensively address human trafficking. The Global Liberty Alliance (GLA) applauds this message and has joined in these efforts in its recent work in Latin America.
On May 26, the Global Liberty Alliance sent a letter to Uruguay's Ambassador to the United States thanking Uruguay for its efforts in unmasking forced labor practices by the Cuban Communist Party Medical Brigade programs.
