PARTIAL LIST OF PRISONS, CORRECTIONAL AND DETENTION CENTERS IN CUBA

BY PROVINCE








Cuba is the only country in the hemisphere that does not allow the International Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations access to its prisons, casting a veil of secrecy over its extensive prison system, reportedly one of the largest per capita in Latin America and the Caribbean. According to information gathered by the American Security Council Foundation it appears that over 20,000 political dissidents have been murdered under the Castro government.. Over a 40 year period they have jailed almost 500,000 political prisoners. Many of these prisoners were sent to labor camps for re-education. In 1959 under the Batista government there were 11 prisons in Cuba. Under Castro there are now over 300 prisons.
