He'll continue recovering back home.
by Stephen Lendman
He's home. He arrived on February 18 at 2:30AM Caracas time. He announced his arrival via Twitter.
"I have returned to the Venezuelan homeland," he said. "Thank God!! Thank you beloved people! I will continue the treatment here."
Separately he thanked Fidel and Raul Castro. He praise Cuba's superb medical providers. "We will live and we will overcome," he said.
Fidel Castro wished him well on departure. He said in part :
I am extremely satisfied that you have been able to return to that piece of American land which you love so much, and to our brother people who support you so much.
A long and agonizing wait, as well as your astonishing capacity for physical resistance and the total dedication of a team of doctors, as has been the case over the last 10 years, were necessary to achieve this objective.
You learned a lot about life, Hugo, in those difficult days of suffering and sacrifice.
Now that we will not have the privilege of receiving news of you on a daily basis, we will go back to the method of correspondence which we have used for many years.
We will always live to fight for justice for human beings, consciously and humbly, without fear of the years, months, days or hours that we might have left to live in the most critical era of the history of our humanity.
Our people, who are also your people, will know tomorrow of your return to Venezuelan via this message.
Everything had to be done with much discretion, so as not to give an opportunity to the fascist groups to plan any of their cynical actions against the Bolivarian revolutionary process.
Global supporters "followed the 'health and news of Chavez."
