The Court, to make
that decision, took into account the large amount of documentary
evidence and those provided by witnesses and experts presented
during the oral trial, particularly the ones by the prosecutor,
which showed the direct participation of the US contractor in a
subversive project of the US government to try to destroy the
Revolution, by way of the use of info-communication systems out
of the control of the authorities, in order to promote
destabilizing plans against various social sectors.
During the hearing of the oral trial, the defendant admitted
having been used and
manipulated by the United States Agency for International
Development (USAID), subordinate to the Department of State and
which finances the DAI Contracting Company, on behalf of which
Gross came to Cuba.
Against this sentence, Alan Phillip Gross will be able to lodge
a cassation appeal at the Courtroom for Crimes against State
Security of the People’s Supreme Court.
