CANADA: CUBAN DIPLOMAT EXPELLED FROM U-S TAKES REFUGE
TAPE_NUMBER: EF00/0250 IN_TIME: 22:13:19 LENGTH: 01:07 SOURCES: CBC RESTRICTIONS: No access Canada/ABC/Internet FEED: VARIOUS (THE ABOVE TIME-CODE IS TIME-OF-DAY) SCRIPT: Natural Sound A Cuban diplomat who went into hiding in the Cuban Embassy in Canada has flown back to Cuba. Jose Imperatori spent five days in the embassy after he was expelled from the United States. Imperatori had wanted to be returned to the United States to combat accusations that he was involved in espionage. Canadian officials say Jose Imperatori was in the country illegally because his transit visa had expired but they were unable to arrest him because he had taken refuge in the Cuban embassy in Ottawa. Imperatori left the Cuban Embassy car with diplomatic plates escorted by four Royal Canadian Mounted Police vehicles. He had been declared persona non grata by Washington last week for allegedly helping a U-S Immigration Service worker who is accused of spying for Cuba. U-S officials then flew Imperatori to Canada, where he took refuge in the Cuban Embassy. Imperatori is linked to Mariano Faget, a Cuban-born US immigration officer recently arrested for allegedly spying for Havana. The F-B-I said it had watched Mr Faget meet the Washington-based diplomat at a Miami airport bar. Cuba says that the latest dispute between Havana and Washington is a plot between the F-B-I and anti-Castro Cuban exiles to block the return of shipwreck survivor Elian Gonzalez. The Cuban boy, rescued off Florida last November, is at the centre of a highly politicized custody battle between his father in Cuba and relatives in Miami. The Clinton administration has denied any connection between Elian and Imperatori. SHOTLIST: XFA Ottawa, Canada - March 2, 2000 1. Security officers in Cuban Embassy compound 2.

Cuba Aftermath - Daylight scenes at Mexican embassy plus reax
TAPE: EF02/0168 IN_TIME: 00:59:24 DURATION: 2:21 SOURCES: APTN/CUBAVISION RESTRICTIONS: DATELINE: Havana, 28 Feb 2002 SHOTLIST: APTN Night Shots 1. Various shots of police cars patrolling area around Mexican embassy 2. Bus used by asylum seekers to crash into Mexican embassy being towed away Cubavision 3. UPSOUND: (Spanish) Cuban state television newsreader: "In total, the false information was broadcast eight times. It was anopen call (for Cubans) to occupy the Mexican embassy. Mercenary elements who operate in Cuba in the interests of the United States, common criminals and those who do not wish to live under Cuban law, immediately saw the opportunity of taking up Castaneda's invitation- as they interpreted it - and invading the Mexican embassy to travel to the United States. This was a gross provocation organised openly by an official broadcaster of the United States government, on February 28, 2002 at 2:55 in the morning." APTN Day Shots 4. Various shots of Mexican commercial attache walking near embassy complex 5. Shot of Mexican embassy window 6. Various street scenes around Mexican embassy STORYLINE: The Cuban government has blamed the US government's Radio Marti for provoking Wednesday's occupation of the Mexican Embassy in Havana. A group of asylum seekers hijacked a bus and crashed it through the embassy gates. Around 20 Cubans then rushed in. They were still in the embassy complex on Thursday. The bus was removed from the scene in the early hours of Thursday morning and the embassy complex sealed off. Cuban state television news bulletins accused Radio Marti of inciting the invasion by repeatedly broadcasting statements by Mexican Foreign Secretary Jorge Castaneda interpreted as "an open invitation to occupy the embassy of Mexico in Cuba". Radio Marti's reports, it says, were a "gross provocation" leading listeners to believe that Mexico would grant refuge to any Cuban who showed up. Castaneda, who was visiting Miami this week, was quoted by news media there as saying that "the doors of the embassy of Mexico on the island are open to all Cuban citizens". Operated largely by Cuban exiles in Miami, Radio Marti beams anti-Castro news, talk shows and other programmes to the island.
USA: CUBAN DOCTORS JAILED IN ZIMBABWE LATEST
TAPE_NUMBER: EF00/0883 IN_TIME: 07:39:46 - 09:03:33 LENGTH: 01:11 SOURCES: WLTV RESTRICTIONS: FEED: VARIOUS (THE ABOVE TIME-CODE IS TIME-OF-DAY) SCRIPT: Span/Eng/Nat XFA Two Cuban doctors, who were jailed in Zimbabwe for more than a month after defecting during a medical mission, arrived in Miami on Monday after nearly a month's temporary refuge in Sweden. Thirty-one-year-old Leonel Cordova Rodriguez and 25-year-old Noris Pena Martinez arrived after leaving Stockholm on a morning flight, with stopovers in Switzerland and New York. About 30 people were at the airport to welcome the doctors with cheers and the Cuban national anthem. Rodriguez and Martinez were in Zimbabwe on a medical mission when they sought refuge at the Canadian and U-S embassies in Harare, which referred them to the Office of the U-N High Commissioner for Refugees. But the Cubans disappeared on June 2, the day of their hearing before a Zimbabwean asylum committee. The doctors accused Zimbabwean security officers of kidnapping them and of helping Cuban diplomats who tried to force them on a flight to Havana. Air France refused to let them board during a stopover in South Africa after the doctors slipped a note to a crew member saying they were kidnap victims. The doctors were returned to Zimbabwe and jailed, while the U-N refugee agency demanded their release under international law. Cuba said the doctors betrayed the medical mission to aid Zimbabwe's health service but denied any involvement in the alleged kidnapping. The pair arrived in Stockholm on July 8 after the office of the U-N-H-C-R negotiated their release from jail. Swedish immigration authorities issued them two-month visas while they applied for refugee status in the United States. Their refugee status, which was granted just over a week ago, will allow them to apply for permanent residency after one year in the United States. The Cuban-American National Foundation, a Miami-based group that is a staunch opponent of President Fidel Castro, has pledged to help the pair find jobs in the United States. Martinez, a dentist, and Rodriguez, a physician, are hoping to find work as assistants in their fields. Both plan to go through the lengthy process of getting their Cuban degrees revalidated in the United States. Martinez plans to stay with her second cousin who helped lead efforts in the local Cuban exile community on behalf of the doctors. Rodriguez said that his family in Cuba was kicked out of their home because of his defection. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "Here in this country, they received us with open arms." SUPERCAPTION: Noris Pena Martinez, Doctor SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) "I share my sympathy with all Cubans. We wish everyone could share this moment with us."

Various soldiers weapons training 3. Cuban flag outside military academy 4. Antonio Maceio Military Academy 5. Various interiors cadets 6. Outside parade ground 7. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Alberto Marrero, Colonel and Superintendent of Academy: "Our minister says this is the same army with three different names, the army of liberation, the army of rebellion and the revolutionary armed forces - it's the same army" 8. Cadets marching 9. SOUNDBITE: (Spanish) Julia Sotomayor, Cadet: "This is principally a battle for ideas, therefore we will win this battle." 10. Cadets with Cuban flag STORYLINE: Cuba's armed forces, somewhat diminished by almost a decade of economic crisis, are preparing for a display of might this weekend for the first time in years. Many here are seeing the celebration as a sign the economy is slowly recovering from a crisis brought on by the collapse of its socialist allies. As Cuba's economy declined in recent years, parades and celebrations were cut back to save money. Army chief Raul Castro, Fidel's brother, said in an interview published on Monday that Cuba was prepared for any US threat, despite the loss of Soviet aid. "We should never discount the possibility of direct military aggression," he told the national weekly Trabajadores. He said Cuba has built underground shelters and other refuges and armed thousands of people with sniper rifles to repel invaders. One group in training displayed a new Cuban weapon, the heavy, long-barreled Mambi sniper rifle designed to down helicopters.
