Due to the U.S. government’s denial to approve visas,
Gerardo Hernandez Nordelo and Rene Gonzalez Sehwerert have not seen their wives since their incarceration!! Others in the
Cuban 5 have not seen their parents, wives and children with regularity. The U.S. government has taken prolonged periods of
time to issue them visas.
The U.S. government’s denial of visitation rights is
a cruel and horrible form of psychological torture. Their rationale for denial is ridiculous and baseless; none of these family
members are a threat to national security.
We are asking people to fax or mail out this letter to Ms.
Navanetham Pillay, The NEW High Commissioner of Human Rights of the Office for Human Rights-United Nations Office at Geneva.
We are asking her to intercede on behalf of the Cuban 5’s mothers/wives to pressure the U.S. government to grant them
VISAs to visit their husbands/sons!!
