A convicted Cuban spy [sic] still serving probation in the U.S. wants to return home temporarily to visit a critically ill brother.

René González is asking a Miami federal judge to allow him a two-week visit to Cuba. González’s attorney says in court papers that his 53-year-old brother is in the final stages of lung cancer.

The attorney also says González has fully complied with his probation since his release from U.S. prison five months ago.

González is one of the so-called “Cuban Five” convicted of spying on Cuban exiles in South Florida and attempting to infiltrate military installations and political campaigns. One of the five also was convicted of murder conspiracy for the 1996 shootdown of “Brothers to the Rescue” planes.

González hopes to eventually return permanently to Cuba.
