Statement by Josefina Vidal Ferreiro, General Director of the United States División of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba

We have learned about the unfortunate news of the passing of Mrs. Evelyn Gross, the mother of Alan Gross, the US citizen who is serving an imprisonment sentence in Cuba. We would like to convey our heartfelt condolences to his relatives. Given the doubts expressed by the persons who wonder about the reasons why Mr. Gross was not able to visit his mother, it is necessary to clarify that neither the Cuban penitentiary system nor the US penitentiary system provide the possibility for inmates to travel abroad, no matter the reason.

Statement by Mrs. Josefina Vidal Ferreiro, General Director of the United States Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba

We have read with concern the press communiqué issued in the morning of April 8 in Washington stating that “Alan Gross, the USAID subcontractor imprisoned in Cuba for the last four years and four months, launched a hunger strike last week.”

The Cuban government reiterates its willingness to find, together with the US government, a solution to the case of Mr. Gross that is acceptable for both parties, taking into account Cuba’s humanitarian concerns with regard to three of the Five Cubans who have remained unjustly imprisoned in the United States for more than fifteen years.
