Relatives of Barbados Crime’s Victims Ask President Obama to Make Justice

Oct. 6, 2009, Reprinted from ACN HAVANA, Cuba, Oct 6 (acn) Participants in a meeting in commemoration of another anniversary of the Barbados Crime demanded the imprisonment of terrorists Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch, responsible for the crime. They also demanded the release of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly imprisoned in the U.S. since 1998. Margarita Morales, daughter of Alfredo Morales Diego, coach of the Cuban national youth fencing team that was on board the Cubana airliner that was blown down 33 years ago, asked American president Barack Obama to make justice on behalf of the 73 innocent victims of this terrorist attack masterminded by Posada Carriles and Bosch. Speaking on behalf of the families of the victims, Margarita said Obama can release the five Cubans antiterrorists and imprison the terrorists who killed “their fathers, brothers and sisters and young people from Guyana who where flying to Cuba to study.” Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch walk the streets of the United States as free men, in spite of the fact that it has been confirmed before the international community that the CIA was acquainted with the operation to destroy the Cuban plane in mid air and, however, it did not do anything to halt the plan. A peregrination and meeting in homage of the victims of the Barbados Crime and of all terrorist actions against the Cuban people along the 50 years of Revolution took place in the Pantheon dedicated to the Revolutionary Armed Forces in the Colon cemetery in Havana. Among participants in the ceremony was the mother of the captain of the CU 455 Cubana Airlines plane that was blown off, América Pérez Díaz (92), and Justino Di Celmo, father of a young Italian man who was killed during a 1997 series of terrorist attacks against several Havana hotels. In order to avoid such crimes, five Cuban men, known as the Cuban Five, penetrated Miami-based groups who have been responsible for these and other similar crimes committed against the Cuban people. For that reason, the U.S. government has kept them imprisoned since 1998.
