Cuban Criminal Law

In the wake of Cuban Dictator Fidel Castro turning over his power to his 75 year-old younger brother Raul, I wondered what the criminal laws looked like on this island 90 miles south of Florida.

Check out Florida State University's Rule of Law and Cuba site for a comprehensive look at the dissidents and their sentences, the Cuban Constitution, and Sentencing Documents.

Here is a link to the Cuban Penal Code partially translated into English

It is so vague that reading this stuff may give you a headache.

All these web pages are in Spanish and can be translated into English by right clicking the mouse and clicking "Translate Page Into English."

Interesting stuff.
