Canadian Brigaders renew free The Cuban Five call

Cuba: The Canadian “Ernesto Che Guevara” Brigade of Solidarity with Cuba renewed Monday their call of free The Five anti-terrorist Cuban fighters held in US prisons during meeting with relatives of these fighters.

At the meeting held at the Havana-based Friendship House, Olga Salanueva, the wife of Rene Gonzalez, said that her husband and the rest of the group have been held in US prisons for 12 years for warning their country of subversive attacks from Miami.

She urged those present at the gathering to step up solidarity efforts and international pressure to make justice for Gerardo Hernandez, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labanino and Fernando Gonzalez.

In Hernandez’ particular case, she explained that the defence will file a habeas corpus petition for justice to reconsider his situation.

Salanueva said that the writ of habeas corpus in favour of Hernandez, condemned to a harsh double life plus 15 years-sentence, will be filed before Judge Joan Lenard, of the Miami Federal Court, who sentenced them in 2001.

The defense hopes his case to be reconsidered, as his sentence is the result of a delayed, arbitrary and unjust trial.
