One of the many intriguing characters in the saga of Luis Posada Carriles is his wife, Nieves, 74.
She has stuck by his side even as he's been in and out of jail, according to Ann Louise Bardach, author of Without Fidel, an authoritative and insightful book published in October 2009. Bardach writes:
During Posada's incarceration in El Paso, Nieves reappeared as his advocate - lobbying with his lawyers and fussing about his health - just as she had when he was imprisoned in Caracas. She said she was bewildering why authorities were detaining her husband.
"I don't understand how come Orlando (Bosch) got out and Luis's case is taking so long," one of her husband's attorneys recounted her saying, adding..."I think Nieves is still in love with him."
The couple's two children, shown above, are now adults.
