WASHINGTON - Jan. 25, 2023 - PRLog -- The letter, which is signed by 160 lawyers, comes on the heels of a similar letter sent to the President by 18 former heads of state, as well as petitions signed by hundreds of civil society organizations and thousands of citizens, all calling for the United States to lift its embargo and for Cuba to be removed from the SSOT list.

In the letter, the lawyers write, "Nearly half-way into your presidency and there has been no outward gesture or recognition that Cuba's placement on this list was ever merited. We urge you to take action to rectify this injustice and remove Cuba from the State Sponsors of Terrorism list."ACERE member Mayte Sosa said, "It is clear from the outpouring of support from lawyers, former heads of state, civil society organizations, and citizens, that the continued placement of Cuba on the State Sponsors of Terrorism list is unjust and without merit. We call on President Biden to take immediate action to rectify this injustice and remove Cuba from the list."

ACERE is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting greater understanding and engagement between the United States and Cuba.
