The Alliance of Baptists, one of those entities that go to Cuba to conduct tourism disguised as "religious activities" and in violation of the US embargo, announced today that it has been fined $34,000 by an agency of the US government.
The Alliance of Baptists is part of the pro-Castro National Council of Churches.
The NCC and the Alliance of Baptists work with the Cuban Council of Churches, which is controlled by the Castro regime.
One of the reasons why the Treasury Department fined the Alliance of Baptists is because most of its "religious" work was done at a beach near Havana. Alliance leaders have until early September to respond to the fine notice. It outlined a procedure by which the group may officially appeal the ruling or negotiate for a settlement. He said the group was exploring "all options" as of July 7 but had not yet reached a decision.
