      U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Expresses Support for
      the case of the Cuban Five
      Mar. 1, 2013
      Reprinted from MinRex

      UNITED NATIONS, GENEVA, March 1, 2013 - United Nations High
      Commissioner for Human Rights, Mrs. Navenethem Pillay, received, yesterday,
      Olga Salanueva, spouse of René González, and Adriana Pérez, spouse of Gerardo
      Hernández.

      During the meeting, Adriana and Olga explained to the High
      Commissioner the necessity that this organization intercedes in a direct manner
      on behalf of the case of the Cuban Five for a definitive solution, while they
      requested their support in order to be granted visas to entry the United States
      to visit their husbands.

      Olga stressed that the supervised freedom regime endured by
      Rene constitutes a legal absurdity that does not comply with any purpose and
      unnecessarily prohibits his return to his Homeland and reunite his relatives.
      Adriana requested a humanitarian gesture that requires the political
      willingness and ethics of the United States Government.

      Mrs. Pillay acknowledged the visa denial as a violation to
      the human rights and expressed this cannot constitute an additional punishment.

      UN Commissioner expressed her support to this fight and her
      intention to do whatever is possible to find a solution to the case.
