CONSERVATIVE MEP FOR SCOTLAND

Letter to President Juncker re: Castro

06.12.2016.

Despite the eulogies of last week that marked the passing of Fidel Castro, we should never lose sight of the fact that he was a homophobic tyrant who abused the rights and degraded the dignity of the LGBT community of Cuba.

For that reason I call upon President Juncker, who called Castro a 'hero for many', to reflect upon his words and recognise that no-one who persecutes homosexuals can ever qualify as a hero.

Letter attached.
