June 5 Havana, (Prensa Latina) The Miami office of the FBI
centered on arresting five Cuban young men, while allowing the terrorists that carried out the vandalistic attacks on September
11, 2001, to freely train in South Florida for such horrendous acts of terror, Cuban President Fidel Castro affirmed.
When closing the International Meeting against Terrorism, for Truth
and Justice late Saturday night, the Cuban leader alleged that the Chief in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigations
in Miami at the time, Hector Pesquera, was involved in the plot against the Cuban Five, as they are internationally known.
Casstro said the five Cuban men, today serving unjust sentences
in separate prisons in the US, were detained and convicted in what he called a rigged trial in a Miami courthouse for trying
to thwart terrorist actions plotted by Cuban-American groups against the Island.
"Pesquera, ignored that most of the pilots who took part in the
September 11 attacks were training for years under his jurisdiction," Fidel Castro stressed.
"We provided the government of William Clinton with information
on violent actions the Cuban-American mafia was plotting against US planes, which could have resulted in the death of American
citizens. But far from investigating the terrorists, they searched the sources of our information and detained our five compatriots,
currently imprisoned in US jails for trying to save US lives," Fidel Castro assured.
"Informing the US administration on those violent acts shows our
country´s decency. Our government had also alerted the US on an assassination attempt against President Ronald Reagan in the
1980s," he added.
"They are experts planning attacks, but inept in avoiding them,
though they have all the technology of the world," he continued.
Referring to the recently closed meeting on terrorism, Fidel Castro
said "we have tried to gather as much information as possible on US actions in South America, which have caused thousands
The US government has increased its hostility against the Island,
using all sorts of provocations and aggressions, he denounced.
"They are desperate because they must have heard all what participants
to the Havana Conference said," the Cuban president concluded.
