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 Beatriz Roque 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.
