Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bob Hugin marked the 45th anniversary of the death of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster with a statement calling on Cuba to return his killer, Joanne Chesimard, to the United States.

“It is with sadness that we mark the 45th anniversary of the death of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster who was brutally murdered by Joanne Chesimard,” said Hugin. “We will be forever grateful for his service to our state. No matter how many years pass, we will never forget this atrocity and until Cuba returns cop-killer Chesimard and the other terrorists it harbors, there can be no meaningful relationship between our countries. We appreciate the work of all law enforcement professionals and the Foerster family continues to be in our thoughts and prayers.”

Chesimard, who now goes by the name Assata Shakur, escaped from the Clinton Correctional Facility for Women in 1979.  She was granted political asylum by Fidel Castro in 1984.
