3 arrested in missing teen case in Aruba

MICHAEL NORTON

Associated Press


ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Aruba's prime minister said Thursday that finding a missing Alabama teenager was the country's "No. 1 goal," and police arrested three young men who acknowledged giving her a ride the night she disappeared.

Prime Minister Nelson Oduber said his government was working closely with U.S. authorities to solve the case of 18-year-old Natalee Holloway, who dropped from sight more than a week ago.

Oduber said Holloway's disappearance had left the island nation "in a state of shock and disbelief."

"The hearts of the people of Aruba are touched by Natalee and her family," he said at a news conference. "Resolving this is Aruba's No. 1 goal."

Those detained Thursday were two brothers from Suriname and a 17-year-old Dutch student who is the son of a high-ranking Dutch justice official.

The prime minister, who said he had met with Holloway's relatives, pledged that police would not exclude anyone from their investigation.

"On this island nobody stands above the law," he said, stressing that "hope is still alive" that Holloway will be found unharmed.

The 17-year-old met Holloway at a casino in her hotel, the Holiday Inn, two nights before she disappeared on May 30, Aruban Police Cmdr. Jahn van der Straaten told reporters.

In Mountain Brook, Ala., Holloway's hometown, teens who went to Aruba with her on a graduation trip were quoted as saying the Dutch teenager was at several places the group visited, including the restaurant-bar where the honors student was last seen.

Marcia Twitty, Holloway's aunt, said the Alabama students recognized the Dutch teenager from photos shown them by FBI agents. "They had seen him around during the trip. He was just a local guy in the bar and the casino where all the kids were just kind of hanging out," she said.

Attorney General Caren Janssen said the three men were arrested about 6 a.m. but refused to name them or say on what grounds they were being held. Authorities previously described them as students - two Surinamese brothers and the son of a Dutch justice official studying to be a judge.

"The three people have been arrested as suspects," chief government spokesman Ruben Trapenberg told The Associated Press.

Police also impounded a gray Honda; Holloway's friends reported last seeing her leave in a silver car.

Police identified the Surinamese brothers only as Satish and Deepak K. The Dutch detainee, a student at Aruba International School, left his home in the middle-class Montana neighborhood of Oranjestad on Thursday with his head covered in a blue-and-green striped towel.

Attorney general spokeswoman Vivian Van Der Biezan said the detainees were ages 17, 18 and 21.

The three had been detained last week but were released after questioning. Authorities had described them as witnesses "or persons of interest."

Under the Dutch judicial system, which Aruba follows as a protectorate of the Netherlands, people can be arrested on suspicion of a crime but held for up to 116 days without being formally charged. Authorities did not say what charges the three may face and the men will not be officially identified until they are charged.

Holloway disappeared hours before she was to take a flight home. Police found her passport and packed bags in her hotel room. Extensive land and water searches have failed to turn up any trace of her.

Officials were investigating whether the three new detainees had any connection to two former hotel security guards who have been held in the case since Sunday, Janssen said.

The two ex-guards, Nick John, 30, and Abraham Jones, 28, will remain jailed, at least until a court hearing next week, Janssen said. Neither man has been formally charged.

"It's important that we find the truth," the attorney general said. "We're trying very hard to do our investigation in a professional way."

The Dutch detainee is white, while the two Surinamese men are of Indian origin. The two former security guards are black.

Janssen said the investigation "has nothing to do with color of skin" and social class.

A friend of Jones, 33-year-old Alvin Cornett, a black man, said it was a question of money.

"I've not had a problem with color," he said. "It's a question of rich guys and poor guys."

John and Jones are being investigated on suspicion of murder and capital kidnapping charges, their court-appointed defense lawyers, Noraina Pietersz and Chris Lejuez, have said.

John's lawyer, Noriana Pietersz, said she spoke to her client in jail Thursday and decided not to demand his immediate release.

"We prefer to let the prosecution investigate, confident that my client will be released" by next Wednesday, she said.

Holloway vanished while on a five-day trip with 124 classmates and seven chaperones celebrating their high school graduation.

The night she disappeared, Holloway ate and danced at Carlos' n Charlie's bar and restaurant.

Authorities have not said Holloway was a victim of foul play and have not ruled out any possibilities, including that she may have drowned.

The Aruba government and local tourism organizations have offered a $20,000 reward for information leading to Holloway's rescue, her family and benefactors in Alabama have offered an additional $30,000, and Carlos' n Charlie's donated $5,000.

Dear Friends,

Queridos amigos,
La corte suprema de Suiza ya respondío a mi primera carta.
Afectuosamente
Carlos
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Human Rights for all


Dear Sirs,



I address you with the utmost respect, to plead for your immediate intervention in a case of extreme urgency. I know, because I have been observing your organization's records in favor of human rights, that you all are very busy with the prisoners of Guantánamo, and I do not want to distract you with the fact that there are more than 300 other prisoners of conscience that are rotting in Castro's dungeons thanks to world apathy. I want nevertheless, to speak about a prisoner, only one, who is detained in the United States of America.



I refer to one that could also be considered a prisoner of conscience, Mr. Luís Posada Carriles, and who more than 20 American congressmen (all Democrats) want to send into the hands of Mr. Hugo Chávez. Significantly, you can see that those who now want to deport the Cuban Posada Carriles to Venezuela, are the North American politicians who have done more for collecting money and sympathies for the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and The "Macheteros" of Puerto Rico. Two terrorist groups always supported by congressmen like Donald M. Payne and José E. Serrano.



But it turns out that the case of Mr. Posada Carriles (suspected [only suspected] of being involved in the downing of a Cuban airliner) is even more unjust that these of the Taliban in Guantánamo, and it is to this that I want to call your attention, since this Cuban was sent handcuffed and by force to a court thanks to the ill-disposed intervention of the Venezuelan president at that time Carlos Andrés Pérez. And I say ill-disposed, because the article 23 of the Code of Criminal Indictment of Venezuela (CEC) stated that the competent of the court is determined by the territory where the punishable act has been committed.



Likewise, and always adjusting to the Venezuelan legal system of that time, we will see that the case of the Cuban plane happened 29 years ago and that the Venezuelan law (Article 108 of the Penal Code) has a statue of limitations for these type of crimes of 15 years and only when the crime carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail. This without considering that Posada Carriles, is 77 years old he can not be imprisoned in a penitentiary center, by virtue of the article 245 of the Organic Procedural Code (COP) that indicates: "it is not possible to decree the deprivation of liberty to persons older than seventy years".



Today, the government of the United States has arrested without bail Mr. Luís Posada Carriles. In spite of having family in Miami, they have isolated Mr. Posada Carriles in a center of detention next to El Paso, Texas. Luís Posada Carriles is an old combatant against Castro's regime, about whom much has been written, but believes me; most of it is not true. Luís Posada Carriles is a symbol for several generations of Cubans, above all, for those that have always strived to break free from Fidel Castro's tyranny.

They want to try Mr. Luís Posada Carriles for a third time for a crime that he was acquitted of twice in Venezuela which is now under the oppressive leadership of Hugo Chávez. A country, that established more or less one year ago, a judicial agreement with Cuba. An agreement in which Castro has the last word. Can you imagine how Fidel Castro will judge Mr. Luís Posada Carriles? Do you remember how casually Castro ordered the summary execution of 3 black Cubans who did not constitute any threat to his power?I do not believe that I have to mention all terrorist acts committed by Castro (the "good" dictator who is favored by the hypocritical European left wingers) since the 1940s. His intervention as a university student in the so called "Bogotazo" (Bogotá, Colombia, 1948) is recorded in the history of that country for the murder of the liberal leader Jorge Eliécer Gaytán. A Colombian who was presenting himself as a candidate for the presidency of Colombia and who in the polls was appearing as a sure winner.

On May of this year, Castro headed in Havana an "antiterrorist" meeting that rather was trying to distract the attention of the Cubans. The objective of such a costly "antiterrorist congress" was to accuse again Mr. Posada Carriles and blame the United States for his existence. The irony of Castro's attitude he himself has organized, financed and carried out hundreds of terrorist acts, not only since his arrival to power in Cuba in 1959, but also when he was fighting against the dictator Fulgencio Batista.

The war developed in Cuba for the power and directed by Castro, was marked during the 50s by constant campaigns of bombings and fires against civil targets, including shops, theaters, cinemas, buses, airliners, etc. Hundreds of Cubans lost their lives in these terrorist acts planned by Castro. An example of what I mean was the first case of an aircraft hijacked in the history of aviation. On November 1958, a Cuban airliner (Flight 495) crashed at 21:00, with 17 people on board, on the northern coast of Cuba. A terrorist act perpetrated by a group of four members of the movement "July 26th" and following instructions from Fidel Castro.

As soon as he seized power in Cuba in 1959, the Castro government turned into the protector of a great many terrorists from North America and other countries. Dozens of the so called "Black Panthers" accused of terrorism in their countries of origin reside today in Cuba. The best example is that of Assata Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard and who is wanted by the FBI. Chesimard killed in cold blood a police officer in New Jersey and escaped to Cuba in 1979, where she lives as if she is a heroine.

Another North American refugee terrorist in Cuba is a Charlie Hill, who lives protected by the Cuban authorities after having hijacked a TWA plane. In whole, and according to the reports of the FBI, there are more than 70 criminals wanted by the United States justice system, who have found refuge in Castro's Cuba. The majority of them for hijacking airplanes, murder, use of explosives, tax offences and political murders.

Among the perpetrators of multiple murders and the bombers supported by Castro we must not forget the members of the organization named "Los Macheteros" (the same ones that assaulted the Congress of the United States killing the security guard and wounding others) and that in the 1970s, attacked a West Fargo truck and stole more than 1 million dollars. Some of them still remain protected by the Cuban government.

If the Latin Americans and the Europeans have lost their memory, we, the Cubans, have not. During the years after the Cuban revolution, the political assassinations, the kidnappings and the bombs became constant threats in countries such as Nicaragua, El Salvador, Argentina, Uruguay, Guatemala, and Venezuela. Many other nations were a target of the destabilizing campaigns directed from Havana during the sixties, seventies until middle of the eighties.

Castro developed hundreds of campaigns of terrorism against the people of Angola when it supported the MPLA against the UNITA. Cuba maintained a force of 50,000 troops annually for 14 years in this country from 1977. There, they devoted themselves to destroying villages and to exterminating populations. The use of the chemical weapon (in the pure style of Sadam Hussein) by the Cuban troops has been widely documented by a Dutch specialist who investigated the matter for the UN.

Castro has given and continues giving logistic support, refuge, and training, not only to the Latin-American terrorists (Tupamaros, Montoneros, M-19, Zapatistas, and a long etcetera), but also to the Palestinians of Al Fatha and to the Spanish ETA. The latter organization has more than 20 killers enjoying the hospitality of the Cuban dictator and even an office at the America's department of the Central Committee of Cuba. I do not need to say that ETA has committed more than 1000 murders of innocent people (including several children).

Another case known of organized terrorism by Castro and that affected deeply the Cuban community in exile, was the shooting down of two light aircraft belonging to the organization Brothers' s to the Rescue. This is an association of exiled pilots that was devoted to rescuing rafters in the Straits of Florida. All the intelligence agents in Castro's service that contributed to the downing of those two civilian planes in international waters, and the death of four pilots (3 of them North American citizens) are treated as heroes in Cuba.

However, the most recent and abominable of Castro's acts of terrorism was the sinking of the Tugboat named "13 de Marzo". In that ship, there were 72 people trying to escape from his tyranny. A Cuban Coast Guard ship, and another 3 tugboats without previous warning, charged against them at full power in open seas. Women and children together with men were swept away into the dark waters by powerful water canons after the tugboat was rammed several times in the attempt to capsize it. The result of this criminal and premeditated action was 41 deaths of which 10 were children.

I must confess the friends who have warned me to be cautious in the defense of Mr. Posada Carriles have not been few. All of them deserve my highest consideration. I admit that I could be adventurer naive in all those things that are still not clear in the history of this compatriot. But it is not a question of defending here a name, but of the presumption of innocence to which any human being has right. Let's suppose that Mr. Luís Posada Carriles was guilty of each and every of the acts that he is accused of. Would he have a fair trial in the hands of a political puppet of a criminal such as Fidel Castro?

If the whole point is about judging this Cuban, you might well (and should) intercede before the courts of the United States in order to request that Mr. Luís Posada Carriles be tried in this country, since it was there where he has been detained. To allow that to be tried in Hugo Chavez's Venezuela would facilitate the construction of a gallows with judges pronouncing sentence from Havana. The years of this aged man are counted and his future must not be decided by a real terrorist posing as Robin Hood, unfortunately, still he enjoys the admiration of the European leftists.

It is sad to see that nobody, not even your organization (and I apologize if I appear to be unjust due to an incorrect statement) has asked for the indictment of Castro, a Cuban mass murder. On the contrary, it seems as if his crimes are enjoying the coldest complacency.

With my highest regards,

La orfandad democrática

¿Cuánto tiempo durará el ensayo de las naciones del área? ¿Tiene su experimento frente a Venezuela un dead line definido? Por lo pronto, buena parte de los gobiernos de la región parece privilegiar la tendencia a impedir el aislamiento de Chávez. El intento involucra una línea de acción _de apariencia razonable en su estricto diseño teórico_, destinada a enmendar los desatinos norteamericanos frente al caso cubano. Esta lógica pragmática no está exenta, desde luego, de otras motivaciones. Entre ellas, las vinculadas a este singular momento de la posguerra fría, en el cual diversos e incipientes grupos de países bregan un nuevo orden internacional.

Así, Venezuela constituye hoy no sólo una prueba de laboratorio enmarcada dentro de la lucha contra la unipolaridad. También representa un desafío tremendo para el propio sistema hemisférico, cuyo fracaso podría auspiciar un mayor debilitamiento de las democracias latinoamericanas. Si ese fuera el desafortunado corolario del forcejeo, las pérdidas se contarían como "incalculables" aun en los países que con mayor entusiasmo participan de la operación.

La tragedia boliviana, donde Evo Morales adapta cada día su propio guión bolivariano, sería apenas la punta del iceberg en una lapidaria seguidilla que pudiera ser protagonizada por esa suerte de potenciales "ejércitos de ocupación", respaldados desde Caracas. Es inocultable que a través de los medios "del proceso" proliferan relatos épicos de la caminata victoriosa de la "espada de Bolívar por América Latina"... En este cuadro, los piqueteros argentinos, los indigenistas ecuatorianos, los humalistas de Perú y los Sin Tierra de Brasil, emulan contingentes de soldados en formación, prestos a reeditar, cuando sea el momento, el esquema anárquico de los cocaleros, mientras sus respectivos gobiernos despliegan su ensayo frente al caso Chávez.

Pero, además del ajuste de cuentas con EEUU, hay en todo este formulario omisivo una expresión de temor a la figura del comandante venezolano. Un temor que, en sí mismo, proyecta mal el éxito del bienintencionado experimento antiaislacionista, al que se apela casi tiritando de pánico frente a la posible factura revolucionaria. En todo caso, sólo el tiempo dirá si valió la pena el experimento. El se encargará de señalar si la democracia y la libertad deben ser definitivamente privilegiados como asuntos no transables del "área común" entre EEUU, las naciones del área y de Europa. Tratándose de causas superiores, resulta cuando cuestionable sobreponerles a ellas pugnas asociadas a otros trajines que, paralelamente, deshonran el propósito que persiguen. Si la unipolaridad se desprestigia a sí misma con sus arrebatos, la multipolaridad no luce lejos de ese destino: tanto más si sus promotores condenan a la orfandad las materias clave del "área común". ¿No es eso lo que se hace al sentenciar el "monopolio norteamericano" de la causa democrática?

Las "naciones progresistas" del hemisferio y Europa no lo han entendido. Nadie se los ha explicado. Ni siquiera las figuras de la izquierda venezolana, a quienes les correspondería, cuando menos, contarle a sus pares del mundo que la democracia en Venezuela sí está bajo riesgo.

¿Quién mejor que ellos para advertirle a sus viejos amigos de Argentina, Brasil, Chile, Uruguay o España, que esta no es una bandera exclusiva del señor Bush?

La orfandad democrática

¿Cuánto tiempo durará el ensayo de las naciones del área? ¿Tiene su experimento frente a Venezuela un dead line definido? Por lo pronto, buena parte de los gobiernos de la región parece privilegiar la tendencia a impedir el aislamiento de Chávez. El intento involucra una línea de acción _de apariencia razonable en su estricto diseño teórico_, destinada a enmendar los desatinos norteamericanos frente al caso cubano. Esta lógica pragmática no está exenta, desde luego, de otras motivaciones. Entre ellas, las vinculadas a este singular momento de la posguerra fría, en el cual diversos e incipientes grupos de países bregan un nuevo orden internacional.

Así, Venezuela constituye hoy no sólo una prueba de laboratorio enmarcada dentro de la lucha contra la unipolaridad. También representa un desafío tremendo para el propio sistema hemisférico, cuyo fracaso podría auspiciar un mayor debilitamiento de las democracias latinoamericanas. Si ese fuera el desafortunado corolario del forcejeo, las pérdidas se contarían como "incalculables" aun en los países que con mayor entusiasmo participan de la operación.

La tragedia boliviana, donde Evo Morales adapta cada día su propio guión bolivariano, sería apenas la punta del iceberg en una lapidaria seguidilla que pudiera ser protagonizada por esa suerte de potenciales "ejércitos de ocupación", respaldados desde Caracas. Es inocultable que a través de los medios "del proceso" proliferan relatos épicos de la caminata victoriosa de la "espada de Bolívar por América Latina"... En este cuadro, los piqueteros argentinos, los indigenistas ecuatorianos, los humalistas de Perú y los Sin Tierra de Brasil, emulan contingentes de soldados en formación, prestos a reeditar, cuando sea el momento, el esquema anárquico de los cocaleros, mientras sus respectivos gobiernos despliegan su ensayo frente al caso Chávez.

Pero, además del ajuste de cuentas con EEUU, hay en todo este formulario omisivo una expresión de temor a la figura del comandante venezolano. Un temor que, en sí mismo, proyecta mal el éxito del bienintencionado experimento antiaislacionista, al que se apela casi tiritando de pánico frente a la posible factura revolucionaria. En todo caso, sólo el tiempo dirá si valió la pena el experimento. El se encargará de señalar si la democracia y la libertad deben ser definitivamente privilegiados como asuntos no transables del "área común" entre EEUU, las naciones del área y de Europa. Tratándose de causas superiores, resulta cuando cuestionable sobreponerles a ellas pugnas asociadas a otros trajines que, paralelamente, deshonran el propósito que persiguen.

Dear Friends,

Queridos amigos,
La corte suprema de Suiza ya respondío a mi primera carta.
Afectuosamente
Carlos
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Human Rights for all


Dear Sirs,



I address you with the utmost respect, to plead for your immediate intervention in a case of extreme urgency. I know, because I have been observing your organization's records in favor of human rights, that you all are very busy with the prisoners of Guantánamo, and I do not want to distract you with the fact that there are more than 300 other prisoners of conscience that are rotting in Castro's dungeons thanks to world apathy. I want nevertheless, to speak about a prisoner, only one, who is detained in the United States of America.



I refer to one that could also be considered a prisoner of conscience, Mr. Luís Posada Carriles, and who more than 20 American congressmen (all Democrats) want to send into the hands of Mr. Hugo Chávez. Significantly, you can see that those who now want to deport the Cuban Posada Carriles to Venezuela, are the North American politicians who have done more for collecting money and sympathies for the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and The "Macheteros" of Puerto Rico. Two terrorist groups always supported by congressmen like Donald M. Payne and José E. Serrano.



But it turns out that the case of Mr. Posada Carriles (suspected [only suspected] of being involved in the downing of a Cuban airliner) is even more unjust that these of the Taliban in Guantánamo, and it is to this that I want to call your attention, since this Cuban was sent handcuffed and by force to a court thanks to the ill-disposed intervention of the Venezuelan president at that time Carlos Andrés Pérez. And I say ill-disposed, because the article 23 of the Code of Criminal Indictment of Venezuela (CEC) stated that the competent of the court is determined by the territory where the punishable act has been committed.



Likewise, and always adjusting to the Venezuelan legal system of that time, we will see that the case of the Cuban plane happened 29 years ago and that the Venezuelan law (Article 108 of the Penal Code) has a statue of limitations for these type of crimes of 15 years and only when the crime carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in jail. This without considering that Posada Carriles, is 77 years old he can not be imprisoned in a penitentiary center, by virtue of the article 245 of the Organic Procedural Code (COP) that indicates: "it is not possible to decree the deprivation of liberty to persons older than seventy years".



Today, the government of the United States has arrested without bail Mr. Luís Posada Carriles. In spite of having family in Miami, they have isolated Mr. Posada Carriles in a center of detention next to El Paso, Texas. Luís Posada Carriles is an old combatant against Castro's regime, about whom much has been written, but believes me; most of it is not true. Luís Posada Carriles is a symbol for several generations of Cubans, above all, for those that have always strived to break free from Fidel Castro's tyranny.

They want to try Mr. Luís Posada Carriles for a third time for a crime that he was acquitted of twice in Venezuela which is now under the oppressive leadership of Hugo Chávez. A country, that established more or less one year ago, a judicial agreement with Cuba. An agreement in which Castro has the last word. Can you imagine how Fidel Castro will judge Mr. Luís Posada Carriles? Do you remember how casually Castro ordered the summary execution of 3 black Cubans who did not constitute any threat to his power?I do not believe that I have to mention all terrorist acts committed by Castro (the "good" dictator who is favored by the hypocritical European left wingers) since the 1940s. His intervention as a university student in the so called "Bogotazo" (Bogotá, Colombia, 1948) is recorded in the history of that country for the murder of the liberal leader Jorge Eliécer Gaytán. A Colombian who was presenting himself as a candidate for the presidency of Colombia and who in the polls was appearing as a sure winner.

On May of this year, Castro headed in Havana an "antiterrorist" meeting that rather was trying to distract the attention of the Cubans. The objective of such a costly "antiterrorist congress" was to accuse again Mr. Posada Carriles and blame the United States for his existence. The irony of Castro's attitude he himself has organized, financed and carried out hundreds of terrorist acts, not only since his arrival to power in Cuba in 1959, but also when he was fighting against the dictator Fulgencio Batista.

The war developed in Cuba for the power and directed by Castro, was marked during the 50s by constant campaigns of bombings and fires against civil targets, including shops, theaters, cinemas, buses, airliners, etc. Hundreds of Cubans lost their lives in these terrorist acts planned by Castro. An example of what I mean was the first case of an aircraft hijacked in the history of aviation. On November 1958, a Cuban airliner (Flight 495) crashed at 21:00, with 17 people on board, on the northern coast of Cuba. A terrorist act perpetrated by a group of four members of the movement "July 26th" and following instructions from Fidel Castro.

As soon as he seized power in Cuba in 1959, the Castro government turned into the protector of a great many terrorists from North America and other countries. Dozens of the so called "Black Panthers" accused of terrorism in their countries of origin reside today in Cuba. The best example is that of Assata Shakur, whose real name is Joanne Chesimard and who is wanted by the FBI. Chesimard killed in cold blood a police officer in New Jersey and escaped to Cuba in 1979, where she lives as if she is a heroine.

Another North American refugee terrorist in Cuba is a Charlie Hill, who lives protected by the Cuban authorities after having hijacked a TWA plane. In whole, and according to the reports of the FBI, there are more than 70 criminals wanted by the United States justice system, who have found refuge in Castro's Cuba. The majority of them for hijacking airplanes, murder, use of explosives, tax offences and political murders.

Among the perpetrators of multiple murders and the bombers supported by Castro we must not forget the members of the organization named "Los Macheteros" (the same ones that assaulted the Congress of the United States killing the security guard and wounding others) and that in the 1970s, attacked a West Fargo truck and stole more than 1 million dollars. Some of them still remain protected by the Cuban government.

If the Latin Americans and the Europeans have lost their memory, we, the Cubans, have not. During the years after the Cuban revolution, the political assassinations, the kidnappings and the bombs became constant threats in countries such as Nicaragua, El Salvador, Argentina, Uruguay, Guatemala, and Venezuela. Many other nations were a target of the destabilizing campaigns directed from Havana during the sixties, seventies until middle of the eighties.

Castro developed hundreds of campaigns of terrorism against the people of Angola when it supported the MPLA against the UNITA. Cuba maintained a force of 50,000 troops annually for 14 years in this country from 1977. There, they devoted themselves to destroying villages and to exterminating populations. The use of the chemical weapon (in the pure style of Sadam Hussein) by the Cuban troops has been widely documented by a Dutch specialist who investigated the matter for the UN.

Castro has given and continues giving logistic support, refuge, and training, not only to the Latin-American terrorists (Tupamaros, Montoneros, M-19, Zapatistas, and a long etcetera), but also to the Palestinians of Al Fatha and to the Spanish ETA. The latter organization has more than 20 killers enjoying the hospitality of the Cuban dictator and even an office at the America's department of the Central Committee of Cuba. I do not need to say that ETA has committed more than 1000 murders of innocent people (including several children).

Another case known of organized terrorism by Castro and that affected deeply the Cuban community in exile, was the shooting down of two light aircraft belonging to the organization Brothers' s to the Rescue. This is an association of exiled pilots that was devoted to rescuing rafters in the Straits of Florida. All the intelligence agents in Castro's service that contributed to the downing of those two civilian planes in international waters, and the death of four pilots (3 of them North American citizens) are treated as heroes in Cuba.

However, the most recent and abominable of Castro's acts of terrorism was the sinking of the Tugboat named "13 de Marzo". In that ship, there were 72 people trying to escape from his tyranny. A Cuban Coast Guard ship, and another 3 tugboats without previous warning, charged against them at full power in open seas. Women and children together with men were swept away into the dark waters by powerful water canons after the tugboat was rammed several times in the attempt to capsize it. The result of this criminal and premeditated action was 41 deaths of which 10 were children.

I must confess the friends who have warned me to be cautious in the defense of Mr. Posada Carriles have not been few. All of them deserve my highest consideration. I admit that I could be adventurer naive in all those things that are still not clear in the history of this compatriot. But it is not a question of defending here a name, but of the presumption of innocence to which any human being has right. Let's suppose that Mr. Luís Posada Carriles was guilty of each and every of the acts that he is accused of. Would he have a fair trial in the hands of a political puppet of a criminal such as Fidel Castro?

If the whole point is about judging this Cuban, you might well (and should) intercede before the courts of the United States in order to request that Mr. Luís Posada Carriles be tried in this country, since it was there where he has been detained. To allow that to be tried in Hugo Chavez's Venezuela would facilitate the construction of a gallows with judges pronouncing sentence from Havana. The years of this aged man are counted and his future must not be decided by a real terrorist posing as Robin Hood, unfortunately, still he enjoys the admiration of the European leftists.

It is sad to see that nobody, not even your organization (and I apologize if I appear to be unjust due to an incorrect statement) has asked for the indictment of Castro, a Cuban mass murder. On the contrary, it seems as if his crimes are enjoying the coldest complacency.

With my highest regards,

CPJ, RSF, FREEDOM HOUSE ÉTUDIENT LES TENDANCES DE LA LIBERTÉ DE LA PRESSE
DANS LE MONDE
Tandis que partout dans le monde les journalistes et les groupes de défense
de la libre expression célébraient la Journée mondiale de la liberté de la
presse, trois membres de l'IFEX ont insisté sur les difficultés auxquelles
se heurte la liberté de la presse à l'échelle mondiale, sur les risques
accrus pour la sécurité des médias dans les zones de conflit et
l'affaiblissement des démocraties, entre autres.


Le Comité pour la protection des journalistes (CPJ) a inscrit l'Irak au
sommet de sa liste des pires endroits du monde où être journaliste, et cite
25 journalistes tués depuis le début de la guerre menée par les États-Unis.
Ces dernières semaines, les insurgés ont ciblé systématiquement les
étrangers, y compris les journalistes, et les Irakiens qui travaillent pour
eux, a fait remarquer le CPJ.

Au moins six travailleurs irakiens des médias ont été assassinés, et
plusieurs autres ont reçu des menaces. Des groupes armés ont enlevé huit
journalistes en 2004, mais les ont tous relâchés. Depuis janvier 2004, 12
journalistes ont perdu la vie.

Les forces américaines présentent aussi une menace pour les journalistes
dans leur travail, dit le CPJ. Neuf d'entre eux ont été tués par balles par
les troupes américaines, alors que d'autres ont été détenus et ont subi de
mauvais traitements.

La liste du CPJ comprend neuf autres pays où la liberté de la presse est des
plus menacée. Ce sont Cuba, le Zimbabwe, le Bélarus, le Bangladesh, le
Turkménistan, la Chine, l'Érythrée, Haïti, la Russie et la Cisjordanie et la
bande de Gaza. (Voir la liste à :
http://www.cpj.org/enemies/worst_places_04/worst_places_04.html)

Reporters sans frontières (RSF) a également produit sa propre liste de
points chauds de la liberté de presse ? des destinations touristiques sous
la férule de régimes autocratiques. Pour RSF, qui les désigne comme des «
dictatures paradisiaques », la Birmanie, Cuba, les Maldives, les Seychelles,
la Tunisie et le Vietnam sont des endroits où « les journalistes
indépendants, considérés comme des ennemis publics, sont harcelés sans
relâche par les autorités ».

En Birmanie, la junte militaire maintient une censure totale sur
l'information, dit RSF. Onze journalistes sont emprisonnés et leurs
conditions de détention se dégradent. Cuba est la plus grande prison du
monde pour les journalistes, et en compte 29 en prison. La plupart ont été
condamnés à des peines variant de 14 à 27 ans de prison.

Aux Maldives, le plus ancien chef d'État d'Asie en exercice, le président
Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, ne tolère aucune critique, dit RSF. Deux dissidents
sur Internet purgent une peine de prison à perpétuité pour leurs critiques
du gouvernement. Aux Seychelles, les autorités harcèlent le seul journal
d'opposition, « Regar », au moyen de poursuites qui pourraient le forcer à
fermer ses portes.

En Tunisie, le président Ben Ali continue de contrôler la presse écrite et
le journaliste qui ose critiquer sa politique est sans cesse harcelé,
poursuit RSF. Et au Vietnam, les autorités accentuent leur répression contre
les dissidents qui partagent leurs opinions critiques sur Internet. (Voir:
http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=10257)

Pour sa part, Freedom House constate un déclin substantiel de la liberté de
la presse dans le monde au cours de la dernière année. Dans son rapport «
Freedom of the Press 2004: A Global Survey of Media Independence » [Liberté
de presse 2004 : Étude mondiale de l'indépendance des médias], le groupe
affirme que le harcèlement judiciaire, les pressions politiques et la
violence contre les journalistes par des personnages de l'État et d'autres
qui ne relèvent pas de l'État ont mené à la dégradation des conditions dans
de nombreux pays.

L'étude se penche sur la situation dans 193 pays et les classe selon le
degré de liberté de la presse écrite et électronique et sur Internet en
2003.

Certains des reculs les plus graves se sont produits dans des pays où la
démocratie « dérive », dit Freedom House. Il s'agit de l'Italie, de la
Bolivie et de la Russie. L'Italie en particulier est prise à partie comme
pays où la concentration accrue de la propriété des médias a permis au
premier ministre Silvio Berlusconi d'exercer une « influence indue sur le
radiodiffuseur public RAI ». Le holding des médias de Berlusconi comprend
trois des plus importantes stations de télévision privées d'Italie.

Sur le plan régional, le Moyen-Orient et l'Afrique du Nord sont considérés
comme les moins libres, puis viennent ensuite l'Afrique subsaharienne,
l'Europe centrale et de l'Est et l'ex-Union soviétique.

Fundación Knight apoya revista cubana

La fundación John S. y James L. Knight otorgó una subvención de USD 188,000
a CubaNet News para "mejorar el flujo de noticias hacia y desde Cuba", donde
docenas de periodistas fueron sentenciados en marzo a largas penas de cárcel
como parte de una amplia ofensiva contra la libre expresión.
Fundada en 1994, CubaNet News (http://www.cubanet.org/desdcuba.html) es una
organización sin fines de lucro con sede en Estados Unidos que promueve el
periodismo independiente en Cuba.
El Fundación Knight apoyará a los corresponsales de CubaNet en Cuba que
enviarán notas diarias para la revista en línea de la organización,
CubaNet.org. Los fondos también se destinarán a la publicación de una
revista bimensual que se distribuirá en Cuba y un informe especial (en
inglés y español) sobre la reciente ofensiva contra la libre expresión. El
informe se publicará en forma de libro y se distribuirá a las 200
bibliotecas independientes de la isla y se pondrá en circulación general.
Se publicarán otros libros que contendrán las obras completas de 12
corresponsales de CubaNet que están ahora en prisión.
Desde la ofensiva, el número de corresponsales de CubaNet ha descendido de
40 a 28.

Crackdown on the independent press in Cuba.

Special Report Introduction

While the world's attention was focused on the U.S.-led war against Iraq, in
late March and early April, 2003, the Cuban government launched a massive
crackdown on the independent press and the opposition. In all, 29
journalists were arrested, convicted, and given prison sentences ranging
from 14 and 27 years.
The detentions of journalists and political dissidents, who are often
accused of being "counterrevolutionaries" at the service of the United
States, began on March 18 and continued for three days. Police raided and
searched the journalists' homes, confiscating books, typewriters, research
materials, cameras, computers, printers, and fax machines.

At the home of Ricardo González Alfonso, who is the director of the
journalists' association Sociedad de Periodistas Manuel Márquez Sterling,
police confiscated a fax machine, a printer, and a laptop computer that had
been used to publish the association's bimonthly magazine, De Cuba.

The journalists were taken to headquarters of the State Security Department
(DSE)-the political police. A few days later, in early April, prosecutors
requested life imprisonment for three journalists and prison terms ranging
from 15 to 30 years for the rest.

The journalists' one-day summary trials were held on April 3 and 4 behind
closed doors. According to a communiqué issued by several well-known
dissidents, in several cases, defense lawyers could not access their clients
or only had a few hours to prepare their cases.

On April 7, courts across the island announced prison sentences for the 29
journalists, ranging from 14 to 27 years. González Alfonso and prominent
journalist and poet Raúl Rivero were each sentenced to 20 years in prison.
According to the prosecutor's petition, the two journalists were accused of,
among other charges, creating the journalists' organization Sociedad de
Periodistas Manuel Márquez Sterling and its "subversive" magazine, De Cuba.

Rivero and González Alfonso were tried under Article 91 of the Penal Code,
which imposes lengthy prison sentences or death for those who act against
"the independence or the territorial integrity of the State." Other
journalists were also prosecuted for violating Law 88 for the Protection of
Cuba's National Independence and Economy, which imposes up to 20 years in
prison for anyone who commits "acts that in agreement with imperialist
interests are aimed at subverting the internal order of the Nation and
destroy its political, economic, and social system."

The journalists remained imprisoned in several jails administered by the
State Security Department until April 24, 2003, when most were sent to jails
located hundreds of miles from their homes.

In June 2004, imprisoned journalist Carmelo Díaz Fernández was granted a
medical parole but was warned that he would be sent back to prison if he
recovered from his illnesses or did not maintain "good behavior." Manuel
Vázquez Portal, one of CPJ's 2003 International Press Freedom Award winners,
was released without explanation that same month. Upon his release, two
state security officers suggested that Vázquez Portal leave the country. In
October 2004, he was given a document indicating he had been granted a
medical parole.

Rivero, Oscar Espinosa Chepe, Edel José García, and Jorge Olivera Castillo
were all released on medical paroles in late November and early December
2004. During the same period, the other 23 journalists were transferred to
prison hospitals in Havana, ostensibly for medical checkups. The transfers
came as Cuba resumed formal diplomatic contacts with Spain in a possible
precursor to normalizing relations with the European Union. The
circumstances fueled speculation that additional releases were imminent, but
all 23 were returned to their prisons.

As of January 2005, most of the journalists remained in prisons far from
their homes, adding to heavy burden on their families.

Below are the letters and alerts that CPJ has published since March 2003 to
denounce the crackdown on the independent press in Cuba. This section will
be updated periodically as we learn more about the status of the imprisoned
journalists. For more information, please contact CPJ's Americas program
coordinator Carlos Lauría at (212) 465-1004 x112 or via e-mail at

{Introducción a la sección especial}

Mientras la atención del mundo se concentraba en la guerra contra Iraq
liderada por Estados Unidos, a fines de marzo y comienzos de abril el
gobierno cubano lanzó una ofensiva en gran escala contra la prensa
independiente y la disidencia. En total, 29 periodistas fueron arrestados,
condenados y sentenciados a penas de prisión de entre 14 y 27 años.

Las detenciones de periodistas y disidentes políticos, quienes a menudo son
acusados de ser «contrarrevolucionarios» al servicio de Estados Unidos,
comenzaron el 18 de marzo y continuaron por tres días. Agentes de la policía
allanaron y registraron los hogares de los periodistas y les incautaron
libros, máquinas de escribir, materiales de archivo, cámaras, computadoras,
impresoras y aparatos de fax.

En la casa de Ricardo González Alfonso, director de la Sociedad de
Periodistas Manuel Márquez Sterling, la policía confiscó el fax, una
impresora y una computadora portátil que habían sido utilizados para
publicar la revista bimensual de la organización, De Cuba.

Los periodistas fueron trasladados a las sedes del Departamento de Seguridad
del Estado (DSE), la policía política. Unos pocos días después, a comienzos
de abril, fiscales solicitaron cadena perpetua para tres periodistas y penas
de prisión de entre 15 y 30 años para el resto.

Los juicios sumarios de los periodistas, que duraron un día, se realizaron
el 3 y el 4 de abril a puerta cerrada. Según un comunicado difundido por
conocidos disidentes, en varios casos los abogados de la defensa no tuvieron
acceso a los defendidos o sólo tuvieron unas horas para preparar la defensa.

El 7 de abril, tribunales a lo largo de toda la isla dictaron penas de
cárcel para los 29 periodistas, que oscilan entre 14 y 27 años. González
Alfonso y el destacado periodista y poeta Raúl Rivero fueron sentenciados a
20 años de cárcel. De acuerdo con la petición fiscal, los dos periodistas
fueron acusados de, entre otras cosas, crear la organización Sociedad de
Periodistas Manuel Márquez Sterling y su «subversiva» revista, De Cuba.

Rivero y González Alfonso fueron procesados de conformidad con el Artículo
91 del Código Penal, que prevé largas sanciones de privación de libertad o
muerte para todo el que actúe contra «la independencia o la integridad
territorial del Estado». Otros periodistas fueron enjuiciados por violar la
Ley 88 de Protección de la Independencia Nacional y la Economía de Cuba, que
dispone sanciones de privación de libertad de hasta 20 años para toda
persona que cometa «acciones que en concordancia con los intereses
imperialistas persiguen subvertir el orden interno de la Nación y destruir
su sistema político, económico y social».

Los periodistas permanecieron encarcelados en celdas del Departamento de
Seguridad del Estado hasta el 24 de abril del 2003, cuando la mayoría de
ellos fueron trasladados a cárceles ubicadas a cientos de kilómetros de sus
hogares.

En junio del 2004, el periodista preso Carmelo Díaz Fernández recibió una
licencia extrapenal por motivos de salud, pero le advirtieron que si se
ponía bien de salud o no tenía una "buena conducta", sería remitido de nuevo
a la prisión. Manuel Vázquez Portal, uno de los periodistas galardonados con
el Premio Internacional a la Libertad de Prensa del CPJ en el 2003, fue
liberado sin explicación alguna ese mismo mes. Luego de su liberación, dos
agentes de la seguridad del Estado le sugirieron que abandonara el país. En
octubre del 2004, le entregaron un documento donde constaba que había
recibido una licencia extrapenal por motivos de salud.

Rivero, Oscar Espinosa Chepe, Edel José García y Jorge Olivera Castillo
recibieron licencias extrapenales por motivos de salud y fueron liberados a
finales de noviembre y principios de diciembre del 2004. En el mismo
período, las autoridades trasladaron a los demás 23 periodistas presos a
hospitales penitenciarios en La Habana, con la aparente finalidad de
someterlos a un chequeo médico. Los traslados se efectuaron después de que
el gobierno cubano reanudara contactos diplomáticos formales con España como
un paso previo a la normalización de las relaciones entre Cuba y la Unión
Europea. Las circunstancias hicieron pensar a muchos que más liberaciones
eran inminentes, pero los 23 periodistas fueron enviados de regreso a las
prisiones de origen.

Para enero del 2005, la mayoría de los periodistas permanecían encerrados en
prisiones ubicadas lejos de sus hogares, lo que significa una carga más para
sus familias.

A continuación aparecen las cartas y alertas que el CPJ ha publicado desde
marzo del 2003 para denunciar la ofensiva contra la prensa independiente
cubana. Esta sección será actualizada periódicamente a medida que recibamos
más noticias sobre el estado de los periodistas presos. Para más
información, por favor comunicarse con Carlos Lauría, coordinador del
programa de las Américas del CPJ, llamando al (212) 465-1004 ext. 120 o
enviando un correo electrónico a la dirección ***@cpj.org.

Report links Posada to bombing

A CIA document released by a private archive quoted Luis Posada Carriles as
saying plans were underway for the bombing of a Cuba airplane.

BY OSCAR CORRAL

***@herald.com


Four days before anti-Castro militant Luis Posada Carriles is scheduled to
appear before an immigration court in Texas, the private National Security
Archive posted a declassified CIA document from 1976 that quotes Posada as
saying, ``We are going to hit a Cuban airplane.''
The source of that information is not known, although it is described as ''a
former Venezuelan government official'' who is ``usually a reliable
reporter.''

SPYING ON EXILES

The new documents also suggest that Posada was spying on Cuban exiles for
the CIA. One 1976 memo from the CIA to the FBI said, ``Posada also was used
as a source of information on Cuban exile activities.''

The once-secret documents are the latest twist in the Posada case, which
will be detailed in immigration hearings next week.

Posada is asking the U.S. government to grant him political asylum, arguing
that Cuban government agents want to kill him.

Posada has repeatedly denied any involvement in the bombing of a Cuban
jetliner in 1976 that killed 73 people.

Venezuelan courts acquitted him twice in that case, but he said he escaped
from prison while prosecutors appealed.

Posada sneaked into the United States in late March and was detained last
month by immigration authorities outside a house in Southwest Miami-Dade,
where he had been living.

Posada's lawyer, Eduardo Soto, could not be reached for comment Thursday
night. Soto has previously said that his client was not involved in any
terrorism, wants to live peacefully in Miami and is being unfairly maligned
by the Cuban government and its backers.

The declassified papers were posted Thursday by the National Security
Archive, a private, not-for-profit repository of declassified government
records, its website says.

The archive has released scores of documents since word first spread that
Posada may be here.

BONAO MEETING

The papers also give more details about a 1976 meeting in the Dominican
Republic town of Bonao, believed by many in the intelligence community to be
where a wave of anti-Castro attacks were planned for the following months,
including the airliner bombing.

At Bonao, according to a June 1976 FBI document, militant exiles, headed by
Orlando Bosch, formed an umbrella group called CORU, a Spanish acronym for
United Revolutionary Command. Bosch told The Herald recently that Posada was
at Bonao with him at least one night.

An unidentified source quoted one CORU member as claiming that CORU was
responsible for the airliner bombing, a once-confidential FBI document says.

The member 'stated that as far as he was concerned, this bombing and the
resulting deaths were fully justified because CORU was `at war' with the
Fidel Castro regime.''

The five exile organizations that comprised CORU, according to the
documents, were: Accion Cubana, Cuban National Liberation Front; Cuban
Nationalist Movement, Brigade 2506; and 17th of April Movement.

''These groups agreed to jointly participate in the planning, financing and
carrying out of terrorist operations and attacks against Cuba,'' one FBI
document states.

The 1976 CIA memo said Bosch was in Venezuela in the weeks leading up to the
jetliner bombing ``under the protection of Venezuelan President Carlos
Andres Perez.''

Soon after Bosch's arrival in Caracas, where he was helped by Posada, a
$1,000-a-plate fundraiser was held for him by Hildo Folgar, a prominent
surgeon and Cuban exile. Posada attended the fundraiser, according to the
CIA document.

Bosch was also acquitted in the airliner attack and was eventually freed
from a Venezuelan prison. He lives in Miami and could not be reached for
comment.

SOME UNHAPPY

But not all the members of CORU celebrated the jetliner bombing, according
to the papers.

'The bombing of the DC-8 has caused some serious debates within CORU, and it
is now apparent that at least one of the member `action groups' will
withdraw from CORU,'' the October 1976 document states. The information came
from ``a confidential source who has furnished reliable information in the
past.''

The documents released also claim that in the mid-1960s, Posada supposedly
helped a group trying to overthrow the Guatemalan government -- while
telling on his colleagues in that case and others: ``Posada reported to the
agency and later to the FBI on his involvement in and activities of this
group, and subsequent other Cuban exile activist organizations with which he
became affiliated.''

Report links Posada to bombing
A CIA document released by a private archive quoted Luis Posada Carriles
as saying plans were underway for the bombing of a Cuba airplane.
BY OSCAR CORRAL
***@herald.com
Four days before anti-Castro militant Luis Posada Carriles is scheduled
to appear before an immigration court in Texas, the private National
Security Archive posted a declassified CIA document from 1976 that
quotes Posada as saying, ``We are going to hit a Cuban airplane.ŽŽ
The source of that information is not known, although it is described as
ŽŽa former Venezuelan government officialŽŽ who is ``usually a
reliable reporter.ŽŽ
SPYING ON EXILES
The new documents also suggest that Posada was spying on Cuban exiles
for the CIA. One 1976 memo from the CIA to the FBI said, ``Posada also
was used as a source of information on Cuban exile activities.ŽŽ
The once-secret documents are the latest twist in the Posada case, which
will be detailed in immigration hearings next week.
Posada is asking the U.S. government to grant him political asylum,
arguing that Cuban government agents want to kill him.
Posada has repeatedly denied any involvement in the bombing of a Cuban
jetliner in 1976 that killed 73 people.
Venezuelan courts acquitted him twice in that case, but he said he
escaped from prison while prosecutors appealed.
Posada sneaked into the United States in late March and was detained
last month by immigration authorities outside a house in Southwest
Miami-Dade, where he had been living.
Posada's lawyer, Eduardo Soto, could not be reached for comment Thursday
night. Soto has previously said that his client was not involved in any
terrorism, wants to live peacefully in Miami and is being unfairly
maligned by the Cuban government and its backers.
The declassified papers were posted Thursday by the National Security
Archive, a private, not-for-profit repository of declassified government
records, its website says.
The archive has released scores of documents since word first spread
that Posada may be here.
BONAO MEETING
The papers also give more details about a 1976 meeting in the Dominican
Republic town of Bonao, believed by many in the intelligence community
to be where a wave of anti-Castro attacks were planned for the following
months, including the airliner bombing.
At Bonao, according to a June 1976 FBI document, militant exiles, headed
by Orlando Bosch, formed an umbrella group called CORU, a Spanish
acronym for United Revolutionary Command. Bosch told The Herald recently
that Posada was at Bonao with him at least one night.
An unidentified source quoted one CORU member as claiming that CORU was
responsible for the airliner bombing, a once-confidential FBI document
says.
The member 'stated that as far as he was concerned, this bombing and the
resulting deaths were fully justified because CORU was `at warŽ with
the Fidel Castro regime.ŽŽ
The five exile organizations that comprised CORU, according to the
documents, were: Accion Cubana, Cuban National Liberation Front; Cuban
Nationalist Movement, Brigade 2506; and 17th of April Movement.
''These groups agreed to jointly participate in the planning, financing
and carrying out of terrorist operations and attacks against Cuba,'' one
FBI document states.
The 1976 CIA memo said Bosch was in Venezuela in the weeks leading up to
the jetliner bombing ``under the protection of Venezuelan President
Carlos Andres Perez.ŽŽ
Soon after Bosch's arrival in Caracas, where he was helped by Posada, a
$1,000-a-plate fundraiser was held for him by Hildo Folgar, a prominent
surgeon and Cuban exile. Posada attended the fundraiser, according to
the CIA document.
Bosch was also acquitted in the airliner attack and was eventually freed
from a Venezuelan prison. He lives in Miami and could not be reached for
comment.
SOME UNHAPPY
But not all the members of CORU celebrated the jetliner bombing,
according to the papers.
'The bombing of the DC-8 has caused some serious debates within CORU,
and it is now apparent that at least one of the member `action groupsŽ
will withdraw from CORU,ŽŽ the October 1976 document states. The

Report links Posada to bombing
A CIA document released by a private archive quoted Luis Posada Carriles as

BY OSCAR CORRAL
Four days before anti-Castro militant Luis Posada Carriles is scheduled to
appear before an immigration court in Texas, the private National Security

saying, ``We are going to hit a Cuban airplane.''
The source of that information is not known, although it is described as ''a
former Venezuelan government official'' who is ``usually a reliable

The new documents also suggest that Posada was spying on Cuban exiles for
the CIA. One 1976 memo from the CIA to the FBI said, ``Posada also was used

The once-secret documents are the latest twist in the Posada case, which
will be detailed in immigration hearings next week.
Posada is asking the U.S. government to grant him political asylum, arguing
that Cuban government agents want to kill him.
Posada has repeatedly denied any involvement in the bombing of a Cuban

TOP STORY Fed Chief Signals
Rates Still to Rise

Greenspan Says U.S. Economy
Has Left Soft Spot Behind,
But Notes Housing Risk
By GREG IP
Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL


Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan said the economy has left its soft spot behind and that companies' pricing power is more evident, suggesting more interest-rate increases are to come.

Mr. Greenspan also focused on new risks to the economic outlook, specifically high housing prices. In a report released yesterday, the Fed said the value of all U.S. housing climbed 15% in the first quarter from a year earlier, and mortgage debt rose 13%, both easily outstripping the 6% gain in after-tax income over the same period.

"The soft readings on the economy observed in the early spring" did not presage "a more-serious slowdown," Mr. Greenspan told Congress's Joint Economic Committee. Though there have been periods of weakness during the expansion, they are "backing and filling....Instead of the economy going very smoothly forward it goes in little cycles. And hence, it's often misread as though we're about to tilt into a recession."

He said inflation was "contained," but cited risks: slowing productivity growth, which makes it more costly for firms to boost sales, and "evidence of increased pricing power."

The Fed has raised its target for the federal-funds rate, charged on overnight loans between banks, to 3% in eight quarter-point steps from 1% last June. Mr. Greenspan didn't address future rate moves, but quoted from the Fed's May 3 statement that interest rates would likely continue to rise at a "measured" pace. That has come to mean a quarter point per meeting. His commentary suggested that the Fed, contrary to recent speculation, probably will raise rates at least a few more times.

The Fed's job has been complicated by the unusual decline in long-term interest rates since last June, the opposite of what normally happens when the Fed is raising rates. Some analysts say the decline points to a coming slowdown in the economy. Mr. Greenspan does not reject that interpretation, but believes a likelier cause is the increased flow of capital across borders.

In that case, lower long-term rates could be delivering an extra boost to the economy, despite the Fed's efforts to tighten credit conditions. Is the decline "engendering inflationary forces?...That's something which we are focusing on very extensively," he told Rep. Jim Saxton, a New Jersey Republican. "The overall inflation rate does at this stage remain modest, but we will remain vigilant."

The most obvious result of the decline in long-term rates is to pull down mortgage rates and fuel home sales and prices. Mr. Greenspan said a nationwide "bubble" is unlikely, but there are "signs of froth in some local markets where home prices seem to have risen to unsustainable levels....Speculative activity" may be a growing contributor.

Also fueling housing activity, he said, is the spread of interest-only loans and "exotic" adjustable-rate mortgages that let buyers minimize their down payments or delay repayment of principal. He said in the past the U.S. has experienced similar strains without outright declines in housing prices. While such an eventuality can't be ruled out now, it "likely would not have substantial macroeconomic implications" because banks have sold many of their mortgage loans and most homeowners have plenty of equity.

Yesterday, the Fed, in its quarterly "flow of funds" report, said that the value of all household real estate in the U.S. rose 2.7% in the first quarter from the fourth, to $17.7 trillion. At the same time, mortgage debt, including home-equity loans, rose 2.2%, to $7.7 trillion. As a share of disposable income, both rose to new records. Because housing values rose faster than mortgage debt, owners' equity in their homes rose after falling for several quarters, to 56.3% of the value of the homes, from 56.1%.

High housing prices and low savings are in part a result of the low interest rates the Fed implemented to cushion the economy from the collapsing stock and tech-spending bubble in 2001. Asked by Mr. Saxton if he still thinks that was the right policy, Mr. Greenspan said, "We knew...addressing the consequence of a very severe deflation of a bubble carried with it potential side effects. As best we can judge...the positive effects of the policy far exceeded the negative ones. And while it's too soon to judge the final conclusions of how all of this comes out, I think that given the same facts under the same conditions, we would have implemented the same policy."

Esta información proviene del libro del

Dr. Armando M. Lago. El Costo Humano de la Revolución Social, El libro negro del Comunismo Cubano, próximo a publicarse. La investigación es parte de un proyecto más abarcador que intenta documentar la pérdida de vida por razones políticas durante el proceso revolucionario cubano. Hasta la fecha se han documentado alrededor de 10, 000 ejecuciones, asesinatos y desapariciones, actos criminales directamente vinculados al régimen de Fidel Castro. La suma de muertes en intentos de huida por el mar (balseros )

se estima en alrededor de 78,0000.
