The Case of the Cuban Five:

Justice or Injustice?


cubanfive.jpg

The Cuban Five have been imprisoned in the United States for nearly 14 years and are not widely known. Yet, the outcome of their case will have a profound impact on the U.S. justice system and U.S.–Cuba relations. At the heart of their struggle is the fundamental and constitutional right of a defendant to a fair trial, and the right of Cuba to defend itself from terrorism. There is a movement in the United States and worldwide to demand their freedom.
