Statement by the Press Secretary on the Anniversary of Alan Gross' Imprisonment
Five years ago today Alan Gross was arrested for his efforts to help ordinary Cuban citizens have greater access to information through the Internet. The Administration remains focused on securing Alan’s freedom from a Cuban prison, and returning him safely to his wife and children, where he belongs. We remain deeply concerned for Alan’s health, and reiterate our call for his release. The Cuban Government’s release of Alan on humanitarian grounds would remove an impediment to more constructive relations between the United States and Cuba.
