Fernando González Llort, one of the Cuban Five, who serving a 17 year prison sentence on charges of failing to register as a foreign agent and possessing forged identity document, completed his prison sentence. He will be released from a federal prison on February 27, after spending fifteen years in prison.
González will be transferred to an immigration lockup while to await his deportation to Cuba. The waiting period will depend on how quickly the U.S. government moves on the deportation, the Miami attorney Ira Kurzban said.
Fernando González Llort, member of The Cuban Five, is considered a hero in Cuba. He was initially sentenced to 19 years in prison but an appeal cut it to 17 and with time off for good conduct he will have served 15 years, five months and 15 days in prison on Feb. 27, said Gloria La Riva, spokesperson for the U.S.-based “Free the Five” committee.
