Feb. Prison Release Date for 1 of ‘Cuban 5’ Spies 1

MIAMI (AP) — One of the so-called Cuban Five spy ring convicted in the U.S. is scheduled for release next month from a federal prison in Arizona.

U.S. Bureau of Prisons records show that 50-year-old Fernando Gonzalez — known in the U.S. as Ruben Campa — is set for release on Feb. 27. Gonzalez had his 19-year sentenced reduced on appeal and because of good behavior.

Free The Five spokeswoman Gloria La Riva said Tuesday that Gonzalez will wind up serving just over 15 years. She said he will likely be deported to Cuba.

The five were convicted in 2001 of spying on U.S. military installations in South Florida, Cuban exile groups and politicians opposed to Cuba’s communist government. They are considered heroes in Cuba.

Cuban Five member Rene Gonzalez was released in 2011.

  1. Let’s deport Gonzales to Cuba ,even though I would rather have kept him in prison and let’s keep our eyes open to incarcerate any other spy that Castro send to the US.I don’t agree with it but life is life.
