Friday, October 7, 2016

The Honorable Michael Carrington, Speaker of the House of the Barbadian Parliament, received in his office the Cuban delegation attending the 40th Anniversary commemoration of the terrorist attack off the west coasts of this island in October 1976. The head of the delegation, Hero Fernando Gonzalez Llort, in his dual capacity as Vice President of ICAP, after reporting the positive results of the program fulfilled in the country for the occasion, thanked the support of the Barbadian Parliament to the Cuban struggle against the blockade, and in particular, that resolution approved by the legislature in 2011 to reject the isolation policy against Cuba, the struggle against terrorism and for the liberation of the Cuban Five antiterrorist fighters, who at that time were still serving unjust imprisonment in USA.

Statement by Prime Minister Freundel Stuart on 40th Anniversary of Cubana Airlines Disaster
Thursday, October 6, 2016

Forty years ago today, on October 6, 1976, Cubana Airlines flight CU 455 succumbed to a proven act of terrorism, with the loss of life of Cuban nationals, Guyanese nationals and nationals of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Terrorism in its modern form has been therefore known in the English-speaking Caribbean for at least 40 years and its impact still reverberates with us today. The arrests in Trinidad and Tobago following the act and the trial in Venezuela, pointed directly to the perpetrators, who have never been punished in a manner consistent with their horrible crime. The continuous calls for justice, voiced by the families of the victims and the countries from which they came, will not cease until all of the perpetrators have been brought to justice.
