    Here is an interview with Raul Chibas, in Miami.



    Chibas was the president of the revolutionary tribunal that sentenced Jesus Sosa Blanca to death in a circus trial that brought world wide protests. More than 600 war criminals are said to have been executed in Cuba under sentence of these tribunals.



    Chibas' arrival in America brought storms of protest - much on radio and television. It was hoped that asylum would not be granted to a man of his record.
