Dominican Senators Reiterate Support of the Cuban Five

 (acn) A delegation from the Senate of the Dominican
Republic gave on Friday to the Cuban Parliament a copy of a resolution
demanding the immediate release of five Cuban antiterrorists who remain
unjustly imprisoned in the United States since 1998.
   The document was recently approved by an overwhelming majority of the
Dominican Senate and it urges US President Barack Obama to order the
release of Ramon Labañino, Rene Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio
Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez —internationally known as the Cuban Five—
who were arrested and given harsh sentences for monitoring anti-Cuba right
wing groups in South Florida that were planning and carrying out terrorist
actions against the island.
   The leader of the National Liberation Party (PLN) in the Dominican
Senate, Felix Maria Nova Paulino, expressed his gratitude for the respect
they have found in Cuba and praised Cuba’s contribution to his country and
the rest of Latin America.
   During the ceremony, the president of the Cuban Parliament, Ricardo
Alarcon, highlighted the importance of this gesture and noted that they
should multiply in order to make the US government do what it should do:
release the Cuban Five.
   Also present were the Dominican State Minister, Miguel Mejias; the
president o fthe Cuba-Dominican Republic Friendship Group in the Cuban
Parliament, Fernando Vecino Alegret; and the first vice president of the
Cuban Friendship Institute (ICAP), Enrique Roman.
