Notts man detained in Cuba
- last updated Sat 8 Dec 2012
A father from Nottinghamshire is currently being held in Cuba following
his detention by border control, after visiting his mother whose house
had been destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.
Yoandry Depass moved to the UK 20 years ago and holds a British
passport. However, due to Cuba not recognising dual nationality, Mr
Depress requires a Cuban passport under Cuban law, and is unable to
leave without one.
Mr Depress has paid £320 for a passport but doesn't know when he'll get
his hands on it.

His partner, Leah Hall, is worried about his safety, and she's anxious
that he won't be back in the UK in time for Christmas.
Leah also says that their 15 month-old baby girl is starting to wonder
where her Daddy is.
Yoandry is currently being assisted by the British Embassy in Havana, Cuba.
