Chavez demanded Obama to free the Cuban Five and to extradite Pasada Carriles
Caracas, Sept 14 ABN.- The president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez Frias, demanded his US counterpart Barack Obama to free the five Cuban heroes unfairly imprisoned in US prisons, as well as the extradition of the terrorist Luis Posada Carriles.
During his Sunday program Alo Presidente Nº 339, which took place in Caracas, the President welcomed the carrying out of a parade through the streets of the Venezuelan capital city in favor of the release of The Five.
“I was pleased yesterday (Sat. 12) when I saw the crowded and fervent parade demanding the empire to release the five Cuban heroes who are at the empire's dungeons. In that moment I wonder myself: Obama, where are you' Fee the Five and send back Posada Carriles handcuffed, who is protected in the United States and is one of the biggest terrorists in the history of the continent,” he expressed.
Early morning on September 12th 1998, Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labaniño, Fernando Gonzalez, and Rene Gonzalez were arrested in Miami, United States.
The Five, as they are known in virtue of the world campaigns for their release from prison, fulfilled on Saturday more than a decade of prison because they warned and frustrated the plans against Cuba, devised by extremist groups settled in the United States.
Meanwhile, Luis Posada Carriles should be extradited to Venezuela since he is the subject of a lawsuit due to 73 charges for homicide in first degree, and by means of the extradition treaty endorsed between Caracas and Washington, he is considered a fugitive.
Posada Carriles, according to his own confession, is the author of the blowing-up of an airplane from Cubana de Aviacion in 1976, event in which died 73 people.
