Roberto Gonzalez, one of the Defense Lawyers of The Five, in a Critical Condition

(acn) Roberto Gonzalez, one of the members of the legal team of the five Cubans condemned in the United States, is in a critical condition at a Havana hospital after a hard struggle against cancer, which he has been suffering from for several years now.

Roberto is the only brother of Rene Gonzalez, one of the five Cubans condemned in the United States. All these years, his condition as a lawyer has turned him into a tireless fighter for the release of The Five.

In October, he agreed to give the Juventud Rebelde newspaper an interview, in which he offers details about his family and speaks about his convictions, as a lawyer and as a Cuban, in favor of the return home of these five compatriots. His wish to see his brother again in Cuba was also present in his words:

“He (Rene) speaks about continuing to work. He would like to chat with his neighbors, or work on the street on the mechanics of a car… He has an agricultural project in mind, of self-supply. He’s working on it. And I’m planning to accompany him.”
