New York, NY – The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today expressed
disappointment that Cuba's Supreme Court upheld a 15-year sentence for

Development program and an active member of the Jewish community in
Maryland, was in late 2009 and found guilty of "subversion."
Mr. Gross has denied all charges against him. His family reports that

"We call on the Cuban Government to release Mr. Gross immediately on
humanitarian grounds and as a gesture of good will to the American
people," said Abraham H. Foxman, ADL National Director. "We further urge
international leaders who maintain diplomatic relations with Cuba to
encourage to release him."
