Commissaon has appealed to
the C bon government to take

calls ".tuel, inhuman and de-

In a report, the commission
says thtr numerous communi-
calons from individuals and or-
ganizatitos provide a "solid
basis" 1-r the belief that Cuba
tresas its political prisoners
with "ccmnlete disdain."
CiIARGES RECEIVED by
the cormission allege that pri-
soners in Cuba are often vic-
timr.ed by extreme physical
and psychological cruelty, lack
of nedicai assistance and ade-
qutne food. They allege degrad-
ing conditions, forced labor,
aol-Dary confinement, prohibi-
linr of visits and measures to
force acceptance of political in-
doctrinotion.

tos, perhaps Cuba's most fa-

Matos was commandant of
the rebel army in 1959 when he

resigned nine months after the
revolution because of ideol(_..
cal differences with Castro
A complaint received by the
com nission from Matos' wife in
1971 said that Matos had been
denied medical attention for 1s
years and outside contact for
four years. During one two.
year period, he was left naked
in his cell, the complaint said.
"His f'ether, a man practic-
ally 90 years old, has remain-
ed .t the door to the prison for
whole days without being per.
mitred to see his son," the
conunication said.
"Tne prison authorities have
had the cruelty to say to him
'this prisoner does not wish a

he requests it.
Documents which a school
niay keep secret, Kelley said,
are financial records of the stu-
dent's parents, confidential let-
ters of recommendation filed
before Jan. 1, 1975 and records
about which the student has
signed a waver of the right to
access.
The question was brought to
Kelley by Rep. John Markes,
(D-Westland) who asked whe-
ther a university could send to
school districts confidential
evaluations "of teacher appli-
cants but refuse to let the pros-
pective teacher see the file him-
self.
Institutions not receiving fed-
eral funds may keep student
files secret, Kelley said.
