The Rebelion on line daily Thursday urged Spanish President Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero to support the release of five Cuban anti terrorist fighters imprisoned in the United States.
The appeal is included in a note entitled Imaginary Letter to the Wife of One of the Five Cubans Imprisoned in the US by Rodriguez Zapatero.
The text, signed by journalist Pascual Serrano, refers to a letter sent by the head of the Spanish government to the wife of a Cuban counter revolutionary imprisoned on the island after being tried, saying that he will do his best to get the prisoner released.
That message of Zapatero coincided with a similar letter sent by US President George W. Bush to the same woman, in which he extols the so-called Ladies in White, formed by the wives and mothers of various tried and convicted criminals in Cuba.
The imaginary letter expresses sadness because none of the wives of the Cuban antiterrorist fighters, known as the five, has received from the above officials any message of solidarity for Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Rene Gonzalez, Fernando Gonzalez and Ramon Labanino.
