D’Escoto’s UN Farewell Speech to Include Cuban Five Case

HAVANA, Cuba, Aug 27 (acn) Miguel D´Escoto, president of the United Nations General Assembly announced in Managua, Nicaragua, that he will denounce in his farewell speech the injustices done by the US government in the case of the Cuban Five.

At the Augusto César Sandino International Airport, D´Escoto told Prensa Latina news agency that the struggle against terrorism will be part of his speech that will mark the end of this ordinary period of sessions, especially the case of the five Cuban antiterrorists unjustly incarcerated in the United States.

Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, René Gonzalez and Gerardo Hernandez were arrested in September 1998 because they had infiltrated anti Cuban groups in order to alert the Cuban people of the terrorist plans against them.

D’Escoto, a Nicaraguan priest, will denounce that the US administration, once informed by the Cuban authorities of terrorist plans revealed by the Five, as they are known internationally, moved against them instead of stopping such plans.

He also said that he will expose the Palestinian situation and the US and UK policies which show they consider themselves as the world’s masters by trying to impose their positions on the international community.
