Cuban Five's Fernando Gonzalez to be Released from Prison Next Month

Miami, January 29 (RHC) -- One of the Cuban anti-terrorist fighters unjustly imprisoned in the United States since 1998 will be released from a U.S. federal prison on February 27th, but will be transferred to an immigration lockup while awaiting his return to Cuba, according to his lawyer.

U.S. attorney Ira Kurzban said the U.S. Bureau of Prisons has set February 27th as the release date for Fernando Gonzalez, who serves a 17 year prison sentence on alleged espionage charges.

Fernando will join his relatives in Havana, as well as another of his companions, Rene Gonzalez, who was able to return to Cuba in 2013 after serving 13 years and probation time in the United States.

Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino and Antonio Guerrero still remain in U.S. jails serving harsher sentences of up to life in prison.

The Cuban Five, as these men are internationally known, were arrested by U.S. federal authorities in 1998 for monitoring extremist groups based in Florida, who were planning violent actions against Cuba.
