Lawyer: Fugitive loyal to Cuban revolution

The lawyer for Charlie Hill, an American fugitive living in Cuba, released a statement Wednesday objecting to a March magazine article about Hill.
Jason Flores-Williams said in the statement:
In late March of 2016, Huck Magazine published a lengthy article that contained numerous inaccuracies regarding Mr. Hill, an African-American human rights activist who was forced to flee the United States in 1971 due to political repression.

Mr. Hill has since resided in Havana as a guest of the Cuban government. The Huck Magazine article so egregiously mischaracterizes and misstates Mr. Hill’s positions that we are necessarily compelled to immediately enter into litigation against Huck Magazine for fraud, libel and false light. Neither Mr. Hill nor his undersigned attorney were duly notified by Huck Magazine of their intent to publish this article.

Mr. Hill is immensely respectful and appreciative of the Cuban government and has been honored to be a small part of its democratic revolution. He has dedicated his life to the ideals of the Cuban Revolution and the dignity of the poor and disenfranchised throughout the world.
