René Gonzàlez, one of the Cuban 5 (http://tomhayden.com/home/obamas-cuban-5-dilemma.html) serving long prison terms for their surveillance of violent anti-Castro exiles in Miami, is home in Havana after 13 years in American prisons and 18 months probation in Miami. On the recommendation of the White House and Justice Department, Gonzàlez was released in Havana to serve 18 months of further probation and remain there permanently. A Chicago native, Gonzàlez was required to renounce his US citizenship as part of the settlement.
Right-wing Cuban Rep. Ileana Ross-Lehtinen (R-Miami) denounced the US decision as a “threat” to US national security. But Ricardo Alarcón, former president of Cuba’s National Assembly, declared with a smile that Gonzàlez would be kept under “close supervision” as he lives out his remaining 18 months of probation.
