Ricardo Alarcón has been Cuba’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations (UN) for nearly 30 years and has served since 1993 as President of the National Assembly of People’s Power the legislative parliament of theRepublic of Cuba. The parliament has over 600 members elected from single-member electoral districts for a term of five years.

Martin Garbus (www.martingarbus.co) is one of the country’s leading trial lawyers. In early June Garbus and Supreme Court specialist, Thomas Goldstein, together with long-time Cuban Five lawyer Richard Klugh, filed a motion in U.S. Southern District Court, seeking an evidentiary hearing and the right to discovery on behalf of Gerardo Hernández, in his Habeas Corpus appeal.
