HAVANA —
A Cuban dissident acknowledges receiving $2,400 cash from an anti-Castro
group in Miami, but says she doesn't know who brought it to the island.

Laura Pollan says she was given the money by fellow political opposition
leader Martha and split it with eight other dissidents.

Pollan said Tuesday that she did not ask Roque where the money came
from, and could not comment on the Cuban government's claims that the
top U.S. diplomat in Cuba carried funds from a Miami-based group opposed
to Cuba's communist leadership.

Roque said she has no comment yet on Pollan's statement.
