New Cuban 5 Judiciary Process
On the regular Cuban roundtable TV program Monday, participants stated that will only be a new opportunity for the defense team to present complementary accounts and prove anomalies in the trial.
The Five, as Antonio Guerrero, Rene Gonzalez, Ramon Labanino, Gerardo Hernandez and Fernando Gonzalez are universally known, were detained and later accused in 1998 in Miami for having infiltrated terrorist groups working there.
They were condemned to harsh sentences ranging from 15 years to double life imprisonment.
Panelists said that in the August 20 hearing, the defense team and the Attorney"s office will have only 30 minutes to present their arguments, but deliberations could delay several months and until one year.
This will be another moment to denounce at the US and international opinion contradictions of that northern country"s justice, which on one side condemn peace activists and on the other part, release notorious terrorists, they said.
