La Paz, Aug 8 (Prensa Latina) Adriana Perez, wife of Gerardo Hernandez, will visit Bolivia by late August, to reveal the situation of his spouse, one of the five Cubans antiterrorist fighters unjustly held in the United States since 1998.
According to Leila Perez, president of the Movement of Solidarity with Cuba in Bolivia, Adriana Perez will visit this country from August 21 to 26, after staying three days in Peru.
"Adriana's visit here is a great news for us, because she will make known in our country the situation of the Five, as they are universally known, and listen to the voice of one of the victims," the organization's president told Prensa Latina.
For the president of the Movement of Solidarity with Cuba, "Adriana is also a victim, because her family has been doubly victimized because she has been repeatedly denied a visa to visit her husband."
Leila Perez described as "transcendental to hear from Adriana about the situation of Gerardo, the most difficult one of his fellow prisoners, and strengthen efforts to achieve their release.
Adriana's agenda here includes meetings with the members of the Solidarity Movement, of the Plurinational Legislative Assembly and state leaders.
Gerardo Hernandez was sentenced in 2001 by a Florida court to double life sentences plus 15 years in prison. He is still in prison as his other three colleagues, despite strong international pressure so the U.S. government frees them.
Rene Gonzalez has already completed his prison term, but must remain in that northern country for three years on probation.
The Five were detained in September 1998 while monitoring plans by terrorist organizations financed by the United States and settled in southern Florida to report them to Cuban authorities.
