San Jose,- The Costa Rican Committee of Solidarity with Cuba on Wednesday highlighted the permission granted to Rene Gonzalez, one of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly held in U.S. prisons, to travel to his country.
Federal Judge Joan A. Lenard granted the permission, by virtue of which Gonzalez can travel to Havana for two weeks to visit his brother Roberto Gonzalez, who is seriously ill with lung cancer.
A release from the organization stated that Rene is on supervised release for another three years in Miami, Florida, after serving 13 years in prison on October 7, 2011.
Also in U.S. prisons are Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez, who worked with him monitoring the actions by anti-Cuba terrorist groups in that country to prevent criminal actions against their people.
Since September 12, 1998, those heroes have faced abuses, confinement in punishment cells, deprivation of basic rights such as seeing family and friends, and even sentences that reach up to two life sentences plus 15 years.
