Three Ghanaian medical students studying in Cuba on Government of Ghana scholarship have been arrested for allegedly robbing a hotel.

The three, all male, are said to be children of some high level public officials including a deputy minister of state.

The ministry of foreign affairs has also confirmed the arrest of the three Ghanaians to journalists.

There have been recurring incidences of students on scholarship abroad sending SOS to complain about government’s failure to pay their allowances.

Out of frustration some students were compelled to go into robbery, one of the distressed callers who does not want to be named disclosed this to an Accra-based Joy FM.

“They have been jailed for about two months now,” he claimed.

He said the situation is having serious effect on the education of about 350 medical students in Cuba.

Another distraught student said the government has for seven consecutive months defaulted in giving them $250 monthly subvention.

That, he said, has been compounded by the rising cost of living in Cuba, he noted.

“Withholding [the monthly subvention] is killing us,” he remarked.
