The Cuban Five
The Cuban Pastoral Platform supported on Tuesday in a proclamation the need for the five antiterrorists’ family reunification, “to put an end to an injustice unnecessarily extended in time.”
The text was released during a patriotic-cultural meeting held at the Resurrection Chapel of the Evangelical Theology Seminary (SET) of this city, 100 km east of Havana, the Granma newspaper reported.
On his way out of the U.S. Interests Section to Havana on Monday, René Gonzalez, one of the five Cuban antiterrorist heroes unfairly condemned by a U.S. court, said he was very happy to be among his people and family.
Gonzalez arrived to that diplomatic mission on Monday accompanied by his lawyer Phillip Horowitz, to begin the formal procedure of relinquishing his U.S. citizenship, a condition imposed by Judge Joan Lenard to allow him to stay permanently in Cuba.
Adriana Perez, wife of Gerardo Hernandez, one of the five Cuban antiterrorists condemned in the United States asked for the support of the Canadian religious community in the struggle for their return to their homeland.
During a visit to Toronto, Perez met over the weekend with the general secretary of the Anglican Church, Doctor Michael Thompson, and with Stuart Pike, president of the diocese of the Niagara Falls region, the Granma newspaper reported.
British MP's have urged the United States government to grant entry visas to Adriana Perez and Algo Salanueva, wives of Gerardo Hernández and René González, two Cuban political prisoners arbitrarily held in that country since 1998.
The request was made in a letter addressed to U.S. State Secretary, John Kerry, signed by 71 British lawmakers.
