Ros-Lehtinen: Shameful that Castro Sympathizers Criticize U.S. Legal System While Remaining Silent on Injustices Occurring in Cuba

Shameful that Castro Sympathizers Criticize U.S. Legal System While Remaining Silent on Injustices Occurring in Cuba, Ros-Lehtinen Says
 
(WASHINGTON) – U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Middle East and North Africa, released the following statement regarding visitation rights for the  Cuban spies convicted by U.S. judicial system. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:
 
The fact that some Castro apologists are trying to criticize visitation rights afforded to the convicted Cuban spies is appalling and shameful. In Cuba, innocent individuals, including U.S. citizen Alan Gross, are thrown behind bars on fabricated allegations and have to endure Castro’s gulags, inadequate medical care, and inhumane treatment without any regard for human life.
 
"Under the U.S. legal system, those who are found guilty of their crimes are afforded these fundamental human rights and are provided basic necessities, but yet, in the Castro communist system, not even the International Red Cross is allowed access to inspect the prisons or prisoners. There is no moral equivalence in comparing the trials of the Cuban spies who were afforded all the rights that all defendants are granted under U.S. law versus the trumped up charges and sham trial of Alan Gross and so many other innocents.
