Findings:

Cuba used 454 front groups to hijack the United Nations compilation of NGO submissions and turn it into a propaganda sheet for the Castro Communist regime. While critiques of genuine NGOs do appear, they are overwhelmed by an overwhelming and unprecedented amount of submissions by fraudulent “NGOs” that, if they even exist, are puppets of Cuba and its allies abroad. In the chart below, UN Watch examined 28 recent UPR country reviews. There were 9 NGO submissions on Turkmenistan, 12 on Romania, 23 on Germany, 32 on Russia, and, the highest, 48 on Canada. For Cuba, however, the number soars to an incredible 454. As a result, Cuba tainted the NGO process, with fraud on a massive scale. Cuba is abusing the United Nations human rights system.
