Speaking at the closing
session of the Fifth International Meeting on
Society and Its Challenges in the Face of Corruption, which
Friday at Havana’s Convention Center, Alarcon criticized the
suffered by the Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Fernando
Antonio Guerrero, and Rene Gonzalez —internationally known as
Five— and all the violations committed in the legal process
The top legislator recalled that Hernandez, Guerrero, Labañino
Fernando Gonzalez remain unjustly imprisoned while Rene Gonzalez
recently released, but he was forced to stay in U.S. territory
years on probation.
In 1998, the Cuban Five were arrested and given harsh sentences
monitoring anti-Cuba right-wing groups in South Florida that
and carrying out terrorist actions against the Caribbean nation.
Alarcon noted that speaking of the case of the Cuban Five was
valid in a
meeting in which participants were discussing issues such as
fraud and disrespect for the law —“all present in the process
them,” he added.
