Havana, Jan 12 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Wednesday praised the imprint left by activist Alicia Jrapko on Cuba's struggles, a few hours after the news of her death was known in Oakland, California, on Monday.

On his Twitter account, the president emphasized Jrapko’s role in the battle for the return of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters who were unjustly imprisoned in the United States, as well as the return of child Elian Gonzalez, who was also held in that country without his father’s consent.

The head of State also referred to Jrapko’s confrontation against the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba, which she “fought to the end.”

“#Cuba mourns the death of the tireless Argentinean fighter Alicia Jrapko, who consecrated her life to fight for justice on behalf of her missing companions (…) Goodbye, sister,” Diaz-Canel tweeted.
