Embassy Guatemala placed an editorial under Ambassador
Derham's name in leading Guatemalan newspaper "Prensa Libre"
on May 21 in commemoration of the Day of Solidarity with the
Cuban People. Pol/Econ Counselor, drawing on his previous
experience as PAO Havana, discussed the plight of Cuban
political prisoners, the dissident movement, and economic and
human rights conditions in Cuba on "La Primera Hora," one of
Guatemala's most popular radio talk shows. "La Primera Hora"
invited the Cuban Embassy to respond during the live program,
but the Cuban Embassy declined to do so. Pol/Econ Counselor
also covered the same topics during a roundtable with
newspaper journalists from "El Periodico," "Siglo XXI," and
"Diario de Centro America."
