Geneva, Oct 9 (Prensa Latina) UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navanethem Pillay has confirmed her interest in the case of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly held in the United States.
In a letter sent to Cuba's permanent representative in Geneva, Ambassador Rodolfo Reyes, Pillay said that she "remains alerted to this case and also to the situation of the wife of Rene González and the wife of Gerardo Hernandez."
Pillay stated that "dialogue and diplomacy are the proper way to monitor this situation."
Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez and Gerardo Hernandez were condemned to harsh sentences ranging from 15 years to double life terms plus 15 years in prison, for alerting their people to terrorist actions being organized from U.S. territory.
In case of Rene Gonzalez, he completed his prison term on October 2011, and has been forced to remain in that territory for three more years under supervised release.
