Background Eight years after being named as winner, the Cuban Ladies in White are finally set to receive their 2005 Sakharov Prize in person from EP president Martin Schulz. The Ladies, the mothers and wives of Cuban political prisoners, have only now been authorised by Havana to travel to Europe to collect their prize.

The Sakharov Prize is awarded by the EP every year to honour individuals or organisations campaigning for human rights and fundamental freedoms. Launched in 1988, the prize is named after Andrei Sakharov, the Soviet physicist, political dissident and Nobel Peace Prize winner.
