The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to..

…prominent Castro critic and political prisoner of the regime, Dr. Oscar Elias Biscet:

Oscar Elias Biscet is a champion in the fight against tyranny and oppression. Despite being persecuted and imprisoned for his beliefs, he continues to advocate for a free Cuba in which the rights of all people are respected.

The ceremony for Dr. Biscet and the seven other recipients of this year’s award takes place November 5. As Babalu Blog notes, Dr. Biscet ain’t too likely to show up for his award–thanks to Castro.
