Lawyer Martin Garbus on Monday spoke about a U.S. government-financed "propaganda machine" that purportedly influenced the conviction of the Cuban Five, including agent Gerardo Hernández.
I wrote about that on Aug. 17 (See "Lawyer: Journalists akin to paid secret agents") and on Aug. 20 (See "Lawyer: U.S. ran illegal 'propaganda machine'"). So did the Miami Herald's Juan Tamayo, who reported on Aug. 21:
An appeals lawyer for the leader of five Cuban spies convicted in a Miami trial filed an affidavit Monday arguing that Radio/TV Marti secretly paid millions of dollars to journalists to influence jury members against his client.Now someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see that any new court documents were filed in the Hernández case, as the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five had promised.
I have been monitoring Public Access to Court Electronic Records, or Pacer, and there are no new documents in the USA v. Hernández file (Case No. 1998-cr-00721).
