“With deep grief we remember Fabio Di Celmo’s death, a crime which engrossed the list of the terrorism encouraged and financed by United States’ governements since the first years of the Revolution.”

This was stated by Hero of the Republic of Cuba and chairman of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP)Fernando González Llort in the act for the 20th anniversary of the death of Italian 32 year-old Fabio Di Celmo as a result of the terrorist attack in the Copacabana Hotel.

“The grief of Giustino Di Celmohis wife Ora, the siblingsFabio, Tiziana and Livio, as well as so many Cuban terroristm-strickenfamilies cannot be counted. The loss of a loved one leaves an indelible scar, even more when these crimes go unpunished and theirperpetratorsare protected”.

González Llort highlighted the obligation of reminding the United States their historic debt to Cuba. “We’ll never forget the bombing of La Coubre steamship, with more than one hundred deaths and 400 wounded; the horrendous crimes of the counterrevolutionary bands in El Escambray and other places; the 73 victims of the bombing of the Cubana airliner in mid-flight; the attacks on facilities and fishing boats; machine gunning and bombings in cities, towns and sugar mills; the hemorrhagic dengue epidemic they introduced causing 158 deaths, among them 101 children; the germ warfare to people, cattle and crops, neither the assault attemps against the main revolutionary leaders, includingmore than 600 against Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz.”

In the act, historian, writer and university professor AcelaCaner Román read out a letter from Tiziana Di Celmo, Fabio’s sister, who is living in Italy, in which she said: “I’m not physically with you, but my heart has forever stayed in your beautiful country that Fabio and my father loved so much.”
