Photo credit: internationalist.orgThe release of the Cuban Five and the lifting of the United States trade embargo on Cuba will not be put to rest until these matters are resolved.That is according to an official at the Caribbean Section of the International Relations Department Juan Pozo who paid an official visit to Dominica recently.The “Cuban Five” were jailed in September 1998 for reporting on violent schemes by far-right anti-Cuban groups based in Miami and then convicted in 2001 by a Florida court on alleged espionage charges. The Five were given excessively long sentences, put in separate jails in different parts of the country with periods of solitary confinement, and routinely denied visits by their family members, who are residing in Cuba.Pozo said Dominica should continue to stand in solidarity with Cuba as long as it takes.He says one of the Cuban five members René González, was recently released from jail under probation and must remain in the state of Florida for a period of three years.“For us he is still in jail because the US claims that he is in some supervised freedom. He is at more risk because anything can happen to him now”, he explained.He said Dominican has been supporting Cuba and “we are grateful, we will continue to fight these causes,” he added.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img
