Czech MPs meet Cuban dissidents in Havana

A delegation of Czech MPs has held talks with Cuban dissidents in Havana, several weeks after the Czech MP Ivan Pilip was released from prison for meeting anti-Castro dissidents. The delegation, in Cuba to attend a conference organised by the Inter-Parliamentary Union, met Cuban opposition figures at the home of Elizardo Sanchez, one of Cuba's most outspoken critics of the Castro regime. Mr Sanchez extended an invitation to the leader of the Czech Communist Party, Miroslav Grebenicek, to visit him in Havana during his forthcoming trip to Cuba. The Communists were the only Czech political party to support Cuba following the arrest of Mr Pilip and a colleague in January.
