US courts have removed the final roadblock to finally expose Cuba’s $11 billion human trafficking export business.
While most people think of human trafficking involving young children and prostitution, Cuba has a much more valuable product.
Communist Cuba has been exporting their doctors to Central and South America and have made huge profits from it.
Doctors who have defected report they are given a small stipend they are barely able to live on while Cuba’s communist regime makes billions.
Cuba tells these doctors that since their medical education is “free,” they are the property of the state and therefore can be used however the communist government so decides.
They control the doctors by taking their travel documents and freezing all their bank accounts.
The World Health Organization affiliate, Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), has been helping run this scheme for years.
These so-called “Slave Doctors” from Cuba have been exploited since the Castro regime. Most countries pay Cuba directly for them – and Cuba has made $11 billion in hard currency from the industry.
The lawsuit against the World Health Organization’s affiliate have been given the green light so doctors may finally get paid and this practice exposed.
Cuba has especially been making serious money during the COVID epidemic with their doctors sent to Italy and other hard hit areas.
Cuba’s “Slave Doctors” are also sent to some of the poorest regions in the world where they’re expected to mostly engage in political work. The Cuban government tells them to spread the revolution, not cure the disease.
By using UN cover groups, Cuba has been able to skirt the human rights restrictions that would otherwise not allow this modern slave-trade to happen.
“U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg ruled that the complaint sufficiently shows PAHO’s actions as the financial intermediary between Cuba and Brazil were commercial in nature, denying PAHO of immunity and making it subject to the federal court’s jurisdiction,” the Cuban Doctors Human Rights Litigation team, which represents the plaintiff doctors, said in a press release published Wednesday. “The decision was in response to PAHO’s motion to dismiss, arguing that it is immune from the suit.”
The group of suing doctors hope that a successful action will finally allow them to be paid for their time held as hostages by Cuba’s communist regime and stop this practice in the future.
