Judicial Watch recently filed a “motion for judgment” on behalf of the family of a Cuban man summarily executed by the Castro regime in 2003. The victim, captured while trying to escape from Cuba, was executed by firing squad immediately after a sham trial. The execution took place as part of a broader violent crackdown by Castro against any dissent in Cuba. The lawsuit seeks an award of compensatory and punitive damages against the Cuban regime in excess of $100 million. See below for a copy of the motion for judgment and it supporting exhibits.
