UK Government refuses visa René González

UK Government refuses visa René González
Last night , a few hours before his departure, one of the principal witnesses for the International Commission of Inquiry into the case of the Cuban Five  to be held in London on March 7 and 8 , René González was refused  visa to enter in the UK. The reason given for the refusal is based on paragraph 320 2b of UK immigration laws , that states (2) the fact that the person seeking entrance to the United Kingdom (b) has been convicted of an offence for which they have been sentenced to a period of imprisonment of at least 4 years. You are in this case , concludes the document - here in attachment- , so you will not get an entry visa .
René González was released last year as the first of the Cuban Five . He was imprisoned for 15 years , after a trial that Amnesty International labeled as unjust . One of the aims of the Commission of Inquiry is exactly to investigate this aspect of the case. The British government is acting as if Gonzalez would mean a threat for British society. Until now we can only guess the reason behind this decision, but in the context of the already highly politicised case of the Cuban Five , it should be no doubt  that the decision can be based on political motives .
