Questions for Hugo Chavez on the Health Care System in Cuba

José Daniel Ferrer García

Earlier today on his twitter account former Cuban prisoner of conscience José Daniel Ferrer García, who was unjustly imprisoned from March 2003 through March 2011, and continues his vocation as a Cuban human rights defender
and pro-democracy activist asked a number of open questions to Hugo
Chavez, of Venezuela, currently in Cuba recovering from surgery:
"Chavez recently said Cuba has one of the world's best health systems. I wonder what he'd say if he were an ordinary Cuban?"

"What would Chavez say of the Cuban health system if he were family of one of the patients who died in Mazorra?"

"Continuing with Chavez. What would he say of Cuban health care if he were a widower of one of the women who died in the Palma Soriano maternity hospital?"

Jose Daniel then concludes with a tweet that placed the above questions into the proper context: "The Cuban health system, like so many other things, works very well, yes, for foreigners and the nomenklatura."
