U.S. not talking to Cuba about Alan Gross

(JNS.org) Dec. 3 marked the fourth anniversary of the incarceration of Gross, who is serving a 15-year prison term for helping Cuba’s Jewish community access the Internet while he was a subcontractor for the United States Agency for International Development. Gross’s attorney, Scott Gilbert, told JNS.org that there has been “virtually no serious engagement with the Cuban government to attempt to negotiate Alan’s release” since his imprisonment. “The Cuban government, at the highest levels, has made very clear to us both privately and publicly that they would sit down with the United States with no preconditions to discuss the conditions of Alan’s release and try to negotiate a resolution, and the United States has yet to sit down and do that,” he said.
