    Canadian man stuck in Cuba despite overturned conviction

    Some people forget that Cuba is a Communist dictatorship until reality smacks them in the face.

    A Quebec man has been stuck in Cuba for more than year as he awaits the local prosecution’s decision on how to proceed with his case involving a boating accident in which a woman died.

    While on a tourist excursion during a family trip to Cuba in July 2017, Toufik Benhamiche lost control of the boat and ended up fatally colliding with a woman from Ontario. He was later convicted of criminal negligence causing death and sentenced to four years in prison.

    The conviction, however, was later overturned when Cuba's highest court found errors in how the lower court handled the case.
    “They're just not letting him leave,” Grey said. “He is just there aimlessly. He can't work. He doesn't have his family.”

    So a man kills somebody and he can't leave the country until it is sorted out.

    Sounds reasonable to me

    Pro tip: Don't rent a car or drive in Cuba. It could have the same result.
