Supervised Release

Tags: |

I wrote on 2 September that of the five Cubans who have been imprisoned on terrorist charges in the United States, one was due to be released. It has now been announced that when René González leaves prison on 7 October he will have to spend three years on ‘supervised release’ in Miami, where anti-Castro feeling is rife, even though he has made it clear he would like to renounce his US citizenship and return to Cuba. His family have only been allowed to see him once in 13 years. The judge’s decision is based on a request from Assistant Attorney Carolina Heck-Miller, the official who recently decided not to prosecute Luis Posada Carriles, a known anti-Castro terrorist who is wanted in Venezuela for his role in bombing a Cuban airliner in 1976.
