Regime grants parole to Cuban-American Alina López Miyares

MIAMI, United States. – The Cuban regime granted parole to Cuban-American Alina López Miyares, sentenced to 13 years in prison for alleged espionage and imprisoned on the island since 2017, her lawyers confirmed this Thursday to independent media such as Cuban Journal Y CyberCuba.

“We presented to the United Nations Arbitrary Detention Group all the documentation related to the case and recently this rapporteurship considered that López Miyares was arbitrarily imprisoned,” Edilio Hernández Herrera, from the legal group Ayuda Ciudadana, told Cuban Journal.

“All the legal arguments that we presented to them, perhaps together with a nod from the Havana regime to the Biden administration, contributed to their release,” the jurist considered.

According to a Western Territorial Military Court order to which he had access CyberCuba, To grant López Miyares parole, the regime took into account the inmate’s good behavior in prison, as well as her health problems.

López Miyares must remain in Cuba until 2030, the date on which his sentence will expire.

López Miyares and her husband, Félix Martín Milanés Fajardo, a former diplomat from Havana to the United Nations, were found guilty for working on behalf of the United States intelligence services.

Both were being investigated by Cuban counterintelligence on suspicion of providing secret information.

During their trial, held behind closed doors, Cuban officials attempted to show that the defendants intended to provide the reports required by the US special services, and that they interacted with agents from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in North American territory.

Miyares and her husband reportedly handed over names, telephone numbers and other data that “could endanger the national security of the Cuban State.”

Alina López Miyares was born in 1959 in Havana and left Cuba when she was just eight years old. Educated in the United States, she has three doctorates and is a teacher by profession. She had repatriated to Cuba shortly before being arrested.
