Row With Cuba over Detained Britons


Six British security workers, five men and one woman, are still jailed in Cuba on the suspicion of industrial espionage. However, there is hope, since Cuban authorities are now also trying to gain access to the imprisoned Britons.

The Foreign Office and the British consul in Havanna, Bernard Garside, have been pressing to see the British citizens at once. Garside has at least been assured that the prisoners are well.

The six prisoners must get legal advice from a layer - and they must finally be told why they are in prison. The Foreign Office minister Mr. Hain, said: "The British government has the right to offer them consular protection."
