(Sunshine State News) – Gov. Rick Scott on Friday called for the exclusion of “the Cuban dictatorship” from the upcoming Summit of the Americas April 13 and 14 in Lima, Peru.

In a letter to Secretary General Luis Almagro of the Organization of American States, Scott called on Almagro’s “commitment to the democracy requirement” in the OAS and the Inter-American Democratic Charter.

“For six decades the sovereignty of the Cuban people has been held hostage by a brutal dictatorship that has incarcerated, tortured and murdered innocent people in order to preserve its reign of oppression and misery over the Cuban people,” Scott wrote.

“In recent days, we witnessed a fraudulent effort to carry out so-called elections as the dictatorship advances toward a dynastic succession.”
