Havana, Feb 8 (RHC) On Wednesday, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel regretted the death of human rights lawyer Beinusz Szmukler at the age of 91 and expressed gratitude for his solidarity with the archipelago.

We just saw him in Buenos Aires (Argentina). Lucid, affectionate, and cheerful, despite his ailments, Beinusz Szmukler came to see us. Cuba will be eternally grateful to him for his firm position on the side of truth, in defense of the Cuban Five anti-terrorists and his solidarity with the Cuban Revolution, the president wrote on Twitter.

The message from the Cuban head of state included a note from the Institute “Space for Memory”, which Beinusz Szmukler co-chaired, that highlighted his commitment, rigor, and generosity and pointed out that Szmukler, who died at the age of 91, was a member of the Buenos Aires Bar Association, defender of political prisoners, advisory president of the American Association of Jurists, member of the Council of the Judiciary, and member of the Legitimate Justice collective, among other instances where he deployed his solid knowledge.

At Szmukler's farewell, Havana's ambassador in Argentina, Pedro Pablo Prada, described the prestigious lawyer as "a relevant actor in the cause of the Five Heroes and a permanent militant of the Cuban Revolution". (Source: PL)
