Panama, May 24 (Prensa Latina) Lawyers in lawsuit in the case of terrorist Luis Posada Carriles and his accomplices in Panama who were punished because of terrorism and indulted by former president Mireya Moscoso, will impugn a cassation to revoke their penal sentences.

So it was said by Julio Berrios, one of the five lawyers in the trial in Panama against Posada, Pedro Remón Rodríguez, Gaspar Eugenio Jiménez Escobedo and Guillermo Novo Sampoll.

Posada and his friends were going to blow up the Paraninph of the University of Panama in 2000 to try to murder Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro.

After a long penal process, they were sentenced, but only for the attempt of attack with explosives and false documents, and indulted by former panamenian president Mireya Moscoso on August 26, 2004.

Berrios said the defenders want to revoke the sentence and they will give a press conference on Wednesday, on the penal process.

“I think that the Panamanian Supreme Court does not have any other alternative than to keep the sentence. And our courts will have to request the US government to give back those criminals so they finish their penal sentences in our country,” he said.

Berrios also said once the arguments of the defense to revoke the punishment will be rejected, lawyers should proceed for a request of extradition of the criminals, but he had his doubts on the topic, because those criminals are protected by the US government.
