Havana, May 24 – After three days exchanging experiences and knowledge among lawyers, jurists and judges, the Seventh International Law and Justice Meeting concludes here today.
Experts from 16 countries, among them Russia, China, Argentina, Brazil and Venezuela, are meeting with their Cuban peers through panel discussions, workshops, and keynote speeches.
For three days, they have discussed a number of issues related to legal, civil and labor issues, among others.
Many domestic and foreign speakers stressed Cuba’s successes above all in treating people deprived of their liberty, and the speed with which those cases are processed.
Xi Xiaoming, vice president of the People’s Supreme Court of China, gave a keynote speech yesterday about the protection of seas and the laws that are being implemented in his country and worldwide.
The expert called for redoubled international efforts to draft such laws at the world and regional level.
A panel discussion to analyze the case of the Cubans being held prisoner in the United States for more than 15 years is expected for today.
Three of the original five Cubans still remain in prison, while Rene Gonzalez and Fernando Gonzalez have returned to the island after completing their prison sentences.
