The Cuban Five are Cuban revolutionaries who were monitoring the terrorist activities of anti-Cuban exile groups in Miami. These groups had already carried out deadly attacks against Cuba and were continuing to plan more attacks. The Five were arrested by the FBI on September 12 1998, and were framed and convicted in a trial that one court called a “perfect storm” of prejudice.
