Neuer Antrag für Gerardo eingereicht

Anwälte ersuchen um weitere Akteneinsichtnahme

bezüglich der von der Regierung gekauften Journalisten

 

In dieser Woche wurde von den Anwälten Tom Goldstein und Martin Garbus über den lokalen Anwalt Richard Klugh ein neuer Antrag im Namen von Gerardo Hernández beim Bundesgerichtshof eingereicht.

Der Antrag versucht, die Regierung dazu zu zwingen, zusätzliche Information über die Zahlungen an Miami-Journalisten zur Zeit des Verfahrens gegen die Cuban Five herauszugeben. Die von diesen Journalisten verfassten Artikel trugen zu der vergifteten Atmosphäre bei, die ein faires Verfahren für die Fünf unmöglich machte.

 

Die Aufdeckung der Regierungszahlungen an Journalisten von Miami gehörte in Zusammenarbeit mit der „Partnerschip of Civil Justice Fund“ und der Zeitung „Liberation“ zu den Hauptrecherchen des nationalen US-Komitees zur Befreiung der Cuban Five während der letzten drei Jahre. Der Umstand, dass die Miami-Journalisten, die angeblich als „unabhängige“ Presse berichteten, auf der Gehaltsliste der US-Regierung standen, geht zum Kern der für die Fünf unrechtmäßigen Verurteilung. Die Fünf waren nicht nur Opfer einer politisch-motivierten Strafverfolgung, sondern die auch einer von der Regierung gesponserten Operation.

New motions filed on behalf of Gerardo

Lawyers seek further discovery
about government-paid journalists

A new motion was filed this week on behalf of Gerardo Hernández in Federal Court by counsel Tom Goldstein and Martin Garbus, with local counsel Richard Klugh. The motion seeks to force the U.S. government to release additional information about its payments to Miami journalists at the time of the Cuban Five’s trial. Articles written by those journalists were one part of the poisonous atmosphere which made a fair trial for the Five impossible.

Exposure of the government’s payments to Miami journalists has been a key focus of research conducted by the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five during the past three years, in collaboration with the Partnership for Civl Justice Fund and Liberation newspaper. The presence of Miami journalists on the U.S. government payroll, who purported to report as “independent” press, goes to the heart of the unjust conviction of the Five. The Five were not only victims of a politically-motivated prosecution, but a government-funded propaganda operation as well.

A moving account of courage by Antonio

Dear friends:

On June 8th fourteen years ago, we were declared guilty of all charges by a jury in the city of Miami, where we could never have received an impartial and fair trial.

I think one of us heard something on the Miami radio, or perhaps on television, on the 7th we were pretty certain that the verdict would be the following day. And, indeed, they came to wake us around 4 a.m. to take us to the Court.

We knew not to expect anything good. The members of the jury had barely taken any time to arrive at their decision. Despite that, I remember vividly, in none of us Five was there the slightest bit of defeatism, in fact, just the opposite. We went with our heads high as we sat down before that jury, which obviously had heard only the version of the facts fabricated by the prosecutors, and they had not even expressed one doubt in arriving at their conclusion.

What would the jury’s deliberations have been like, if there had been any doubt?

What could be expected of a jury that felt an immense pressure on them from the very day they were selected?

A jury whose vehicle license plates were filmed. A jury that was told not to read the press nor discuss what was published with anybody (and now we know about all that was published by the [U.S.-] paid journalists), but who went to their homes every day. A jury in which some of their family members had links with government entities. A jury whose foreman came to sit next to Basulto, one of the many admitted terrorists in Miami, on the day of Gerardo’s sentencing, and he was visibly euphoric.

I remember that night of the 8th I wrote a poem, inspired by that thought of our Apostol, José Martí:

“Truth is like a colossal arm, which raises justice up where the avarice of men cannot reach.”

One day after that colossal injustice, our Commander-in-Chief Fidel informed our people and the world of our situation.

Thus began an unstoppable, long and difficult battle to bring us home to our homeland, a battle in which loyal friends of Cuba from around the world have joined together with our people.

Nothing can hold back that great wave of solidarity that grows more each day.

Truth is ours.

There never was nor will there ever be defeatism.

Venceremos!

Five embraces.
