Havana, Cuba, Jun 2.- Former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark reiterated on Wednesday his confidence in the fact that the five Cuban antiterrorists condemned to unfair sentences in that country over 12 years ago will be freed.
Clark appeared on Wednesday in the Round Table television program, where he ratified that Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino and Rene Gonzalez have not committed any crime against the security or the interests of the United States.
I’ve always been optimistic and I hope that these five brave men will be release and return to Cuba, stated the US Attorney General during the government of President Lyndon Baines Johnson.
He asserted that The Five, as they’re known internationally, “will return to their homes and will enjoy the rest of their lives as heroes of the history of the struggle for the rights of mankind.”
He referred to the biased performance of the US legal system in the case of The Five, and recalled the farce mounted in El Paso, Texas, where terrorist Luis Posada Carriles, responsible for the blowing of a Cubana airliner in mid air in 1976, killing all 73 people on board, was exonerated Clark stands out for his struggles in favor of justice and against imperialist crimes in the world, and in this regard he pointed out that if it weren’t for the US blockade international cooperation with Cuba would be greater.
He said that he visited Cuban hospitals, in which the commitment of the people and the government to provide them with material resources necessary for their work, in spite of the blockade, is evident.
While referring to socioeconomic programs for popular benefit, Clark recalled that his first visit to Havana took place in 1946, but that he had never witnessed the advances experienced by Cuba after the triumph of the Revolution in 1959. (acn).
