The chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee is leading a congressional campaign to nominate prominent Cuban dissidents for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Cuba accused the top U.S. diplomat in the country yesterday of delivering mail to political dissidents that contained money from a Miami-based anti-Castro exile group whose leader is in jail in the U.S. on weapons charges.
"All we know is that they have invited a representative of each prisoner who has not been contacted by the church or who have refused to travel to Spain," said Laura Pollan, the head of the Ladies in White, a group of wives of political prisoners.
