Due to the U.S. government’s denial to approve visas, Gerardo Hernandez 
Nordelo has not seen his wife for 13 years.  Rene Gonzalez, who is 
currently on parole in Florida, was not able to see his wife until this 
year's visit to Cuba, when his brother Roberto Gonzalez passed away.  
For the 13 years he was incarcerated she was never allowed to visit and 
still cannot see him in the U.S. while on parole!

Others in the Cuban 5 have not seen their parents, wives and children 
with regularity. The U.S. government has taken prolonged periods of time 
to issue them visas.

The U.S. government’s denial of visitation rights is a cruel and 
horrible form of psychological torture. Their rationale for denial is 
ridiculous and baseless; none of these family members are a threat to 
national security.

We are asking people to fax or mail out this letter to Ms. Navanetham 
Pillay, The NEW High Commissioner of Human Rights of the Office for 
Human Rights-United Nations Office at Geneva. We are asking her to 
intercede on behalf of the Cuban 5’s mothers/wives to pressure the U.S. 
government to grant them VISAs to visit their husbands/sons!!
