A new motion on return of Rene Gonzalez to Cuba re-filed this week
Havana, June 25 (RHC) The lawyers of Cuban anti-terrorist fighter Rene Gonzalez, currently under a 3-year probation in the US, re-field a motion requesting that Gonzalez serves the rest of his probation in Cuba with his family.
The announcement was made in news release by the International Committee for the Release of the Cuban Five, which also explains that Rene was released of prison on October 7, 2011, after having served 13 years, but has been obliged to fulfill three-year term of supervised release in US territory.
A similar motion was filed previously to Rene’s release and in that moment the Judge found that Defendant’s Motion was premature because a term of supervised release does not commence until an individual is “released from imprisonment”, and some amount of time on supervised release needs to pass before the Court is able to properly evaluate the characteristics of the defendant once he or she has been released from prison.
Now, 8 months later, Rene has fulfilled all the conditions imposed. It’s time to allow him to return home, reads the article published on the International Committee’s website.
