Cuban Communist Party congratulates Hero of the Republic

Havana, Jun 4 (Prensa Latina) The Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) congratulated today the Hero of the Republic, Gerardo Hernández Nordelo, on the occasion of his 58th birthday.

“A hero of Cuba, of the people, pride of the nation and for that matter, deputy, member of the Council of State and of the Central Committee of the PCC, leader of our largest mass organization, on his birthday. Congratulations Gerardo Hernández. Good health to you, continue to fight”, expressed the political organization on its Twitter account.

On this social network, deputies of the National Assembly of People’s Power and the island’s authorities also sent congratulations to the Hero of the Republic and National Coordinator of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution.

Gerardo Hernández Nordelo, an International Relations graduate, is one of the young revolutionaries known internationally as The Five, who infiltrated violent groups based in Miami to warn about their activities.

He was released on December 17, 2014 as part of a humanitarian agreement reached between the governments of the United States and Cuba.

The release was reported simultaneously by then-presidents Raúl Castro (Cuba) and Barack Obama (United States) in separate communiqués in which they also announced the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

On February 24, 2015, Hernández Nordelo was awarded the title of Hero of the Republic of Cuba and the Playa Girón Order.
