Cuba is the largest island State in the Caribbean in terms of area and population. A one-party socialist State since 1959, the country remained under the leadership of revolutionary leader Fidel Castro for nearly 50 years before his younger brother Raul took over as Head of State in 2008. The State has been widely criticised for the repression of its people’s civil and political rights and for its intolerance of opponents of the regime, human rights activists and journalists.
