US CITIZEN ALAN GROSS SENTENCED TO 15 YEARS IN PRISON

The Court of Crimes against the State Security of the People’s Provincial Tribunal in Havana sentenced US citizen Alan Gross to 15 years in prison for the crime of “Acts against the Independence or the Territorial Integrity of the State” on Friday last.

The Court’s ruling was based on the numerous testimonial, expert and documentary evidence considered during the hearing, particularly those presented by the prosecution, which proved the direct participation of the US contractor in a subversive project of the US government to attempt to destroy the Cuban Revolution through the use of information and communication systems that operated out of the control of local authorities, aimed at the promotion of destabilizing plans against several social sectors.

During the hearing, the defendant admitted that he was used and manipulated by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which is subordinated to the State Department and is financed by the DAI contracting firm, on whose name Gross came to Cuba.

Alan Phillip Gross will be entitled to file an appeal, at the appropriate time, before the Court of Crimes against the State Security of the People’s Supreme Court.
