Cuban Anti-terrorist Fighter Renounces his U.S. Citizenship
News from Cuba | Wednesday, 8 May 2013
Cuban anti-terrorist fighter Rene Gonzalez began here today the proceedings to renounce the United States (U.S.) citizenship, a requirement set by the authorities of that country to modify the terms of his supervised release.
Gonzalez came to the U.S. Interests Section in Cuba accompanied by his lawyer Philip Horowitz.
Last week Judge Joan Lenard accepted the request to stay on Cuban territory made by the anti-terrorist fighter, who after serving his sentence in October 2011 was forced to continue in northern soil for three years on supervised release.
The procedure will end when a Certificate of Loss of Citizenship by the State Department is issued.
Rene was arrested in 1998 along with Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Laba€ ¢Ã?ino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez for monitoring terrorist groups that from Miami organized, financed and executed actions as those that have left for Cuba over 3, 300 dead and about 2,000 injured.
