Nov. 26 (Bloomberg) -- Cuba’s government is considering whether to pardon Alan Gross, a U.S. contractor imprisoned in the Communist country, to win political concessions from U.S. President Barack Obama, the Miami Herald reported today, citing officials it didn’t name in Raul Castro’s administration.

Some in the Castro government say freeing Gross, who was working as a subcontractor for the U.S. Agency for International Development in Cuba when he was arrested in 2009, would put pressure on Obama to loosen travel restrictions to the island and release four Cubans serving sentences for espionage, the newspaper reported in its online edition.
