Rev. Walker ordered to testify

You may remember that NYC High School trip to Cuba we complained about last spring. It turns out that fidel’s old friend, the Rev. Lucius Walker helped organize the trip.
The Daily News has the story:

Judge orders rev to fess up on Beacon School’s Cuba trip
The religious leader who helped organize a Manhattan school’s controversial trip to Cuba must speak to investigators, a judge has ruled.
The Rev. Lucius Walker was ordered to comply with a subpoena regarding the Beacon School’s spring break trip to Cuba with his group, the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization.
Schools investigator Richard Condon is probing the role of the school and a teacher in the planning of the 10-day trip, which appears to have violated travel restrictions.
Walker has repeatedly refused to speak with investigators about the April trip. His attorney, Palyn Hung of the New York Civil Liberties Union, said Tuesday that Walker hadn’t decided whether to appeal.
Some educational trips to Cuba, such as those for college students, are allowed, but other travelers are subject to warning letters or fines. School officials have insisted they weren’t aware of the trip.

  1. Well, don’t hold your breath. This guy will play whatever card(s) he has to to weasel out of this, and I’m sure he won’t lack for supporters and helpers. Ultimately, it will all be blamed on the “rabid Cuban intransigents in South Florida.” As always.
