New injustice in the case of the Five

WASHINGTON, April 8.—Authorities at the Victorville Penitentiary in California have refused to allow the U.S. actor Danny Glover a planned visit to Gerardo Hernández, according to a communiqué from the International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5.

Gerardo HernándezPrison authorities informed Glover, who has visited the Cuban anti-terrorist on nine occasions since 2010, that he would not be admitted, since they were not aware of any planned visit.

The Committee notes that this is a totally arbitrary decision, given that any person included on a prisoner’s list has the right to visit.

The communiqué also thanks Danny Glover for his constant support of the liberation of Gerardo and his four brothers in struggle.

U.S. government attempts to isolate Gerardo from his family members and friends have been a consistent for 15 years. During this period, his wife Adriana Pérez has repeatedly been denied a visa to visit Gerardo in prison.
