For the Cuban 5 defense
In September 1998, five Cuban men were arrested in Miami by FBI agents. Gerardo Hernandez, Ramón Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and René Gonzalez were accused of the crime of conspiracy to commit espionage.
RENÉ González Sehwerert, one of Cuba’s five anti-terrorist heroes, was released from prison October 7, 2011 having served in full the brutal and unjust sentence he was given.
