Buenos Aires/Havana – The Cuban government allowed Cuban dissident Hilda
Molina to travel to Argentina, where her family lives, Argentine
President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner said Friday in Buenos Aires.
Molina, a doctor and a former legislator, has been given a passport and
a travel permit by Cuban authorities, Fernandez de Kirchner told
reporters. She also received the necessary visa from the Argentine
Embassy in Havana.

Molina had been waiting for years to travel to Argentina, to visit her
son, Roberto Quinones, and her grandchildren. Her own mother, Hilda
Morejon, was also allowed to travel last year, after a 14-year wait.

Fernandez de Kirchner regarded the end of travel restrictions on Molina
as "very good news," and she thanked Cuban President Raul Castro for an
"important gesture."

Molina, who founded the International Centre for Neurological
Restoration (Ciren), resigned her positions and left the Cuban Communist
Party in 1994. She argued that she had "political and ethical
differences" with the Cuban government, then led by historic leader
Fidel Castro.
