The Cuban Five

               



In September 1998, five Cuban men were imprisoned in the U.S. for trying to stop Miami exile groups from committing violent acts against Cuba. More information on the case can be found at the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5 and the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five. Appeals continue in the case. One of the current grounds for appeal is the discovery that Miami reporters were being paid by the U.S. government to write inflammatory articles about the Five while the trial was underway.
             

On Friday, October 7, 2011, the first of the five was released from the Florida prison where he spent 13 years while being unjustly sanctioned. In May 2013, after serving part of three years of probation in Miami, he was given permission to return to Cuba permanently.

The latest updates on the case can be found at the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five and the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five.
