Len Colby Posted January 12, 2012 Share Posted January 12, 2012 Some of the "5" worked at US military bases which can not be explained away trying to keep track of anti-Castro radicals. I agree though their sentences are harsh but they aren't any more harsh than the ones handed to Cuban dissidents. Gross was sentenced for providing "info-communication systems out of the control of the authorities, in order to promote destabilizing plans against various social sectors."* i.e. providing satellite phones** to members of the Jewish community. The Cuban 'Big Brother' seeks to maintain strict control over communications. * http://www.cubanews.ain.cu/2011/0312Alan-Gross-Sentenced-to-15-Years-in-Prison.htm ** http://articles.cnn.com/2011-03-04/world/cuba.jailed.american_1_judy-gross-cuban-government-alan-gross?_s=PM:WORLD Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
