Foreign Ministry official Johana Tablada told The
Associated Press in a written statement Tuesday that Cuba had informed
U.S. authorities of the country's decision to turn over Joshua Michael
Hakken, his wife Sharyn and their two young boys. She did not say when
the handover would occur.
The Hakkens were spotted alongside their boat,
Salty, docked at Havana's Hemingway Marina. Joshua Michael Hakken told
reporters to stay away but the family appeared to be interacting
normally with each other.
