Lawyers will appeal Cuba's sentence of Canadian Cy Tokmakjian
TORONTO, Oct. 9, 2014 /CNW/ - International lawyers for Cy Tokmakjian and Companies have announced that they are proceeding with appeals to Cuba's Supreme Court to reverse the wrongful convictions and verdict of the lower Court. This is despite their serious doubts and concerns that the results are pre-determined as was the case in their opinion with the trial.

"Cy Tokmakjian was detained unfairly and has suffered enough," says Lorne Waldman, Canadian Human Rights lawyer who is assisting the family. "Cuba should allow Cy to return to Canada immediately. We will continue to work with the Canadian Government to help us win Cy's release," says Waldman.
Tokmakjian family statement:
"Our father is a well-respected entrepreneur who has been doing business in Cuba for more than 20 years. Cy Tokmakjian has fallen victim, along with many other international businesspeople, to the internal power struggles within the changing Cuban political regime. Since the very beginning of Mr. Tokmakjian's legal ordeal in Cuba, he has been denied the most fundamental human and civil rights recognized under both Canadian and international law. Cy is innocent."
