    The U.S. government wants a host of conditions if a judge grants a convicted Cuban spy's request for a visit home for his father's memorial service.
     
    Federal prosecutors asked a Miami federal judge Wednesday to impose the requirements on Rene Gonzalez, who finished his U.S. prison sentence in October 2011 but remains on probation. Gonzalez's 82-year-old father died April 1 after a stroke.

    Among the suggested conditions are no contact with Cuban intelligence officials, submission of a detailed travel itinerary and regular communication with Gonzalez's probation officer in the U.S. The judge did not issue an immediate ruling.
     
    Gonzalez is one of the so-called Cuban Five convicted of spying on exiles in Florida and attempting to infiltrate military installations and political campaigns.  They are celebrated as heroes in Cuba.
