Will First Woman on FBI’s Most Wanted List Be Extradited from Cuba?

As relations between Cuba and the U.S. continue to improve, a big question lingers: Will the first woman on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists List be extradited to face life in prison in America?

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Assata Shakur, who was convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper in 1973, may be extradited because of the improved relations.

Shakur was a member of the Black Liberation Army and the Black Panther Party and was welcomed into Cuba as a fellow socialist with asylum.

It remains unclear whether Cuba would turn over Shakur, but some legal experts said it’s unlikely since she was labeled a political refugee.

An undercover FBI informant was responsible for arming and training the Black Panther Party before violence broke out in the turbulent 1960s, the Center for Investigative Reporting has found.

Activists were alarmed to learn that Richard Masato Aoki, who was considered a fearless militant and street fighter, was an informant who covertly filed reports about the Black Panthers and others in the Bay Area.

Aoki’s background was uncovered as part of three decades of research for the book, “Subversives: The FBI’s War on Student Radicals, and Reagan’s Rise to Power.”

Aoki committed suicide in 2009.
