Lawyer Ibrahim Elizalde, member of the National Union of Jurists of Cuba (UNJC), spoke about the case of the Five in a meeting held at the FMC headquarters. He referred to the latest legal actions that have been undertaken to bring them back home.

Likewise, Irish Sean Joseph Clancy, who is part of the International Committee for the Liberation of the Cuban heroes, referred to the solidarity support and political approachment needed in the Cuban Five case, since their process was politicised since the beginning by the US government.
