La abogada y profesora Debra Evenson, experta en asuntos relacionados con el sistema legal cubano, murió ayer en Nueva York víctima de un cáncer.

Debra escribió decenas de artículos sobre el derecho cubano y las instituciones del país, que se convirtieron en referencia obligada para estudiar las relaciones Cuba-Estados Unidos.

Graduada de la Facultad de Derecho de Rutgers, fue presidente del National Lawyers Guild de 1988 a 1991 -importante gremio de abogados de Estados Unidos, que apoya la libertad de los Cinco cubanos presos en ese país-, y trabajaba para el bufete Rabinowitz, Boudin, Stanar, Krinsky y Lieberman en New York.

Representó a Cuba en algunos de los más importantes casos legales de la Isla frente a las cortes de los Estados Unidos. Sobre el proceso legal en Estados Unidos contra Luis Posada Carriles, Debra había afirmado: ”Es una vergüenza la liberación del terrorista Luis Posada Carriles, y lo hicieron no por falta de cargos sino por incompetencia y cobardía de los letrados”.

Debra fundó también Center for Inter-American Legal Education, una fundación dedicada al intercambio entre abogados estadounidenses y sus colegas latinoamericanos.

“Nuestra pérdida es enorme, pero nos conforta saber que preparó a muchas personas para que continúen con su misión,” dijo David Gespass, el presidente del National Lawyers Guild.

    An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    My spouse and i got very more than happy John could deal with his investigations through the entire precious recommendations he came across out of your web page. It’s not at all simplistic to simply find yourself giving away information and facts which many others have been making money from. And we all acknowledge we now have you to give thanks to for this. These explanations you made, the straightforward blog navigation, the relationships you will assist to promote – it is mostly remarkable, and it is making our son and our family do think the subject matter is amusing, which is unbelievably essential. Many thanks for everything!
