Cuban dissident to be deported

December 26, 2006|From Times Wire Reports

The Bolivian government announced plans to deport a prominent Cuban dissident who publicly criticized President Evo Morales' close ties to Havana.

Dr. Amauris Samartino, a Cuban who holds permanent residence status in Bolivia, will be expelled under a law forbidding immigrants to intervene in the country's politics, a government statement said.

Samartino was arrested in the eastern city of Santa Cruz and will be flown to Cuba once his case has been processed.
