René González, a Cuban spy regarded as hero of the Cuban revolution, arrived on Monday in Venezuela. Venezuelan Minister of Foreign Affairs Elías Jaua welcomed him at Maiquetía airport. González is one of the five individuals imprisoned in 1998 by US authorities for spying of anti-Castro groups in Florida. According to the Cuban government, the group was on counter-terrorist duty. González was sentenced to 13 years in prison and three years on parole. González visited the Cuartel de La Montaña, the site that holds the remains of late President Hugo Chávez. There, he met with Venezuelan Vice-President Jorge Arreaza.
