Canadian businessman goes on trial in Cuba

Canadian businessman goes on trial in Cuban corruption crackdown - Yahoo!

Purvis is a British citizen. A number of other foreigners and Cubans who worked for the companies remain free but cannot leave the island because they are considered witnesses in the cases.. . ."
