Cuban doctor, Ramona Rodriguez (R), 51, walks at the office of the center-right Democratas party leadership in the lower chamber of Brazil's Congress, in Brasilia February 5, 2014. A Cuban doctor working in Brazil has sought political asylum in the office of a conservative party complaining that Cuba's communist government takes too big a slice of her pay, a party official said on Wednesday. Rodriguez entered the office of the center-right Democratas party leadership in the lower chamber of Brazil's Congress on Tuesday afternoon and slept the night on a sofa, the official said. Rodriguez is one of 7,400 Cubans in Brazil who work in a program that hires foreign doctors to attend the sick in slums and remote rural locations unattended by Brazilian physicians.
