Havana, July 21, 2012 (Cuban News Agency – ACN) The release of the five Cuban antiterrorists serving unjust sentences in the U.S. was ratified as a priority for the international work of the Cuban National Assembly of the People’s Power (ANPP by its Spanish acronym).
In the Havana’s Conventions Center, Ramon Pez Ferro, president of the Foreign Relations Standing Commission of the Parliament, stressed that to get Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labanino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez back to the homeland, is in the center of the efforts of that body, and the rest of the Cuban legislature. After being released in October last year from jail after serving an over-a-decade long sentence, Rene Gonzalez is still being held in the US under “supervised release.”
The lifting of the US economic, commercial and financial against the island and to fight anti-Cuba media campaigns orchestrated by the enemies of the Revolution, were also mentioned by Pez Ferro as permanent labor guidelines of the commission which he presides. In reviewing the work of the committee during the first day of meeting of the 12 standing commissions of the legislature, the deputy also reported that the ANPP contacts with parliaments of other nations and individuals was considerable in the first half of the current year. He stressed that at so far this year, his Commission held meetings with leaders of 69 countries and now it has close links with 98 friendship parliamentary groups.
