Last week, the president of the Council of Churches of Cuba, Joel Ortega, participated in a dialogue with religious leaders, academics and social activists at Nicaragua’s Universidad Evangelica Martin Luther King, reported the Prensa Latina news agency.
Cuban Ambassador Eduardo Martinez Borbonet described the Nicaraguan evangelical churches as playing an “active” role in the solidarity movement with the island. The meeting was also attended by Nicaraguan pastor Sixto Ulloa, who is the human rights ombudsman; and Freddy Franco, the national coordinator of the solidarity with Cuba movement there.
Editor’s Note: In December 1998, First Secretary Eduardo Martinez Borbonet, Third Secretary Roberto Azanza Paez and Attaché Gonzalo Fernandez Garay were expelled from the United States for their role as “Wasp Network” Case Officers. All three Directorate of Intelligence (DI) officers had been serving under diplomatic cover at the Cuban Mission to the United Nations (CMUN).
