GLA Again Asks Uruguay to Press Cuba for More Transparency in Cuban Medical Brigades to Stop Human Trafficking
In a letter to Uruguay's Ambassador to Washington, D.C., Dr. Andres Duran, the Global Liberty Alliance stressed that "[c]ontracts for Cuban medical workers must be transparent, public and carried out with the full consent of the non-State worker. It must also be done in accordance with the laws of the Oriental Republic of Uruguay." The letter is embedded at the end of this post.
On July 16, 2020, Ms. Sabrina Veronica Peleaz, Esq. on behalf of GLA, filed an administrative complaint with Uruguay's National Institute of Human Rights and Ombudsman's Office. In the complaint Peláez stressed the irregularities of the contracting with Cuba, which violates the freedom, dignity, physical integrity, right to work, etc., of the medical workers, both by the Uruguayan State and by the Cuban State.
"Uruguay has some of the best medical professionals in the world, and they too must be consulted before foreign medical workers, from any country, can enter the country to provide services," the letter continues.
