The International Press Center (CPI) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba has denied that our newspaper has or has had a correspondent in the country, while it has indicated that it does not have “accredited correspondents” either, days after the arrest of our correspondent in Havana, Camila Acosta, who has covered information on the island for this newspaper since February of this year, was announced. The Cuban communist regime has consistently refused for years to accredit any ABC correspondent.

“MinrexCpi informs that the Spanish media ABC does not have, nor has it ever had a correspondent in Cuba or accredited correspondents in the national territory,” the agency published on its Twitter account. And they assured that in the International Press Center of Havana they are accredited “152 correspondents from 83 media outlets from 23 countries”. According to the center, 24 correspondents from 12 media are officially accredited from Spain, none from ABC.

Camila Acosta was arrested last Monday by several political police officers at 10:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. in Spain-, when she was leaving her home to do a personal procedure in the company of her father, who needed a PCR test. to detect Covid-19, since it was due to go on a trip next Friday. Hours before the arrest took place, the journalist had been covering the protests that are taking place in the Cuban capital against the Díaz-Canel government.

The journalist had blocked access to the Internet and the messaging application ‘WhatsApp’ since the last hour of Sunday, which “justified” her not responding to messages and calls.

Her father has been denouncing for days that he has not been able to see his daughter. Yesterday they informed him that he was no longer at the police station from Infanta and Manglar, if not in another center two hours away from it: the police investigation center 100 and Aldabó, also located in Havana.
