Prosecutor Jorge Serguera quickly switched his demand from death to 30 years imprisonment for the four after telling the five-man military court that Castro had asked him not to seek the death penalty. Castro denounced the plot a "cowardly and repugnant" and said it merited the death penalty. But "the revolution is strong," he said. "I ask that you not appeal for the death penalty for any of those accused." Serguera demanded 30 - year sentences for former Army Majors Rolando Cuebelas and Rarnon Guiin and for Jose Luis Gonzalez Gallarreta and Alberto Blanco Romariz. Cubelas had testified that he was to shoot Castro and asked that he be given the death penalty. Guiin is charged with concealing the plot and spying for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
