Five-year-old penalized because mother tried to leave Cuba

HAVANA, September 12 - Because her mother was caught trying to leave Cuba, Jessica Sánchez Lorenzo, aged 5, has been unable to register for grade one.

Four years ago the political police seized the identity card of Bárbara Lorenzo de Armas. Without this document, Lorenzo de Armas cannot obtain a minor's identify card which the Adolfo del Castillo school requires in order to register her daughter.

Even if the school allowed Jessica to register, her mother couldn't buy the required uniform because this comes from a government store that requires a document to buy there, which was also seized four years ago.

The school advised Lorenzo de Armas that the case has been turned over to the municipal education board. The school is located in the Managua district of Havana.
