Speak to Cuba

Victoria Harrison | 19:18 UK time, Monday, 23 July 2007

Two Cuban women, whose husbands are serving long sentences in the United States for conspiracy to commit espionage, are campaigning to be allowed to visit them in jail. It's not the Cuban authorities who are refusing them permission to travel but for some 10 years the American authorities have repeatedly refused to grant them visas. Amnesty International has questionned the fairness of their husbands' trial and called for temporary visas for the women.

They are among the wives of the so-called Cuban Five who were arrested in Florida in 1998 as part of an alleged spy ring. We've got permission to speak to one of the families about the case, their campaign and relations between Cuba and the US. Send us your questions or let us know if you'd like to take part live in the programme tomorrow, Tuesday.
