Case of Cuban Five Discussed in Brazilian Television
In an interview with TV-Brasil (channel 2), Palmeiro added that the Cuban Five - as they are known internationally - fulfilled their mission of warning Cuba about terrorist attacks that were organized by anti-Cuba extremist groups in South Florida.

She recalled that nearly 3,000 Cubans have died as a result of terrorist actions planned and carried out by these terrorist groups in Miami who act in complicity with US authorities.

Palmeiro explained that his husband, along with Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez and Rene Gonzalez, were arrested in 1998 for fighting terrorism and received harsh and unjust sentences after a biased process held against them in Miami.

She stressed that after almost 10 years of unjust imprisonment, there is still a pending appeal process while Washington denies their families the right to visit them in prison.

She noted that in her particular case, she has not been able to visit her husband with their daughters in the last two years, while Olga Salanueva and Adriana Perez, wives of Rene and Gerardo, respectively, have not been able to visit their respective husbands in the past seven
and ten years.
