U.S. appeals release of Luis Posada Carriles

The Raw Story

Published: Tuesday June 5, 2007


The US government Tuesday appealed a Texas judge's May 8 decision to release Cuban anti-Castro militant Luis Posada Carriles, wanted by Venezuela and Cuba for the 1976 downing of a Cuban airliner that killed all 73 aboard.

The US Department of Justice said it was appealing to the United States Court of Appeals the release order by an El Paso judge, who granted Posada's "motion to suppress evidence and dismissing the indictment" on immigration fraud charges.
