Directorate of Intelligence (DI) Officer Josefina Vidal

On Friday, the State Department released its annual report on human trafficking, placing Cuba on a blacklist of 23 “human trafficking countries.” In response, Josefina Vidal, director-general of the US department with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, responded “The Cuban government rejects categorically as unfounded this unilateral move offending our people,” noted the Chinese news agency Xinhua. “Cuba has not requested the US assessment, nor needed recommendations from the US, a country with the gravest problem of trafficking children and women in the world,” Vidal went on to claim.

According to Xinhua, the regime newspaper – Granma – categorized the US report as “manipulative” and “politically motivated.”

Editor’s Note:  Vidal left the US in May 2003 as part of a mass expulsion of Cuban diplomat-spies. Despite her departure, she continues to insist she is not a career staffer with Havana’s primary foreign intelligence service, the Directorate of Intelligence (DI).

  1. In my opinion Cuba has been involved in every trafficking known to the world from the trafficking of Ivory and Ebony to the drug trafficking.I would not be surprised if Castro has been or is actually involved in human trafficking.Castro communism is involved in everything and anything that can provide money to their pockets.It is surprising the way Cuban baseball players are escaping the Island now a days and then they come to the US very easily when during the 80’s when the Cuban economy was somehow better it was almost impossible for Cuban Baseball players to escape the Island.This is something we should reflect upon because there is a possibility the Castro communists may also be involved in the trafficking of baseball players as a source of income.We must remember that one of Castro’s son Alejandro is in charge of the Cuban baseball national team.
    Vidal response does not surprised me because the Cuban government never admits anything negative.
