Parliamentarian Speaks with Relatives of the Cuban Five
Apr 3 (acn) Danny Pieters, First Vice-president of the Senate of the
Kingdom of Belgium, spoke on Tuesday with relatives of the five
Cuban antiterrorists condemned in the United States for fighting
During the meeting, the parliamentarian took an interest in the
situation of Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labañino,
Gerardo Hernandez and Rene Gonzalez, subjected to unfair
judicial processes for monitoring the activities of
Florida-based anti-Cuban groups.
Magalys Llort, mother of Fernando, updated the European official
about the peculiarities of each case and expressed her
appreciation for the opportunity to share with friends from
around the world the story of The Five.
Rosa Aurora Freijanes, wife of this fighter, explained that two
of the best weapons to struggle for their definitive release and
their return to Cuba are the spreading of the truth about their
case and international solidarity.
Pieters expressed the support of the Belgian Senate, which has
issued a resolution against the violation of the human rights of
these antiterrorists and condemned the unjust imprisonment.
He added that among the next actions to be carried out in favor
of The Five will be the presentation of the case at the Council
of Europe, an organization devoted to the protection of human
rights, where he hopes to incorporate people who condemn the
unfair treatment given to these fighters.
The Belgian parliamentarian is on the island on a work visit,
invited by the National Assembly of the Republic of Cuba, and
his program includes tours of places of economic, social and
cultural interest until April 5.
