ETECSA, THE CUBAN GOVERNMENT'S COMMUNICATIONS ENTERPRISE, HELPS GOVERNMENT TRAMPLE HUMAN RIGHTS.By Roberto Larramendi, Cuba Free Press.

Havana.- On Dec. 17 when dissident Alfredo Castañeda Monsálvez of the Jose Marti Committee for Human Rights was talking with someone at the Miami Radio Station "RHC Cadena Azul," his telephone suddenly ceased to function. He had been participating in a program directed by Angel Martin.

When his call was disconnected, he contacted the shift leader at the telephone company. She refused to give her name but told him the call was not possible because the Miami station had refused to pay for the call. However, the dissident was listening to the station on his radio and heard Martin say that this was not the first time a call coming in from Cuba was cut off. Martin said RHC accepts the charges for the calls made by its listeners.

Article 12 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights states, "Nobody will be subjected to interference in one's private life, family, home or mail."
