Havana, Jan 14 (Prensa Latina) Cuban antiterrorist fighter Rene Gonzalez posted at the website Voices for the Five that the legal process he and his four compatriots have lived through since 1998 is one of the most silenced events in the history of the United States.
Gonzalez stated in his message that the trial against him, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, and Fernando Gonzalez was deliberately hidden from the U.S. people by large media corporations.

The trial was minimized despite being one of the longest ever in the United States, related to issues such as terrorism, charge of conspiracy to commit murder, and the direct implications for relations between Washington and Havana, Gonzalez stated.

The sentences of the Cuban Five, as these men are internationally known, are described as unjust by more than 3,500 messages posted at, responding to the fact that they were punished for preventing terrorist actions against Cuba sponsored by groups based in Miami.

Rene Gonzalez, who is in Cuba after completing his prison sentence and renouncing his U.S. citizenship, thanked the website’s subscribers for their support to the case of the Five and the initiative to organize an International Commission of Inquiry in London, to investigate the case.

The commission, to be held on March 7-8, will be essential to breaking the wall of silence built around the Cuban anti-terrorist fighters, and to showing the world the violations and injustice committed during the judicial process, he said.

This project is supported by 100 figures from various walks of life around the world, who will try to show the world the reality about terrorism and the real struggle against it.

Among the activities scheduled for those days are statements by Rene Gonzalez, relatives of his four compatriots who remain imprisoned, and a review of the evidence in the case by a panel of recognized lawyers.
