US Rejects Cuba’s Biopsy on Alan GrossNovember 30, 2012 | Print |
HAVANA TIMES — US authorities have no way of evaluating the results of the biopsy performed by Cuban doctors “and not one chosen by Gross or one from the US,” said State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland at a press conference.
According to Reuters, the US government disputed whether “contractor” Alan Gross “has access to the kind of care he clearly needs” shortly after the Cuban government ruled out the inmate’s suffering from cancer.
One of Gross’s lawyers, Jared Genser, said, “As soon as possible” a medical oncologist will apply for a visa to travel to Cuba to examine Gross, given that a few days ago the Cuban government authorized this to be done by the doctor and rabbi Elie Abadie.
Gross, 63, has a non-cancerous lesion on the left shoulder (according to the findings of Cuban dortors), but Genser is demanding Gross be tested through a CT scan for more precision.
