  • asombra: Humberto, as much as I agree with you, you’re indulging in a fallacy: accepting the premise that truth actually matters...

  • asombra: Moore’s just a highly enabled pig. Whenever someone of his ilk gets any leverage, the results are inevitably the same....

  • AliciaE: So…is there a recording archived somewhere that we can access? I hope it went well for you, Prof. Eire. I’m sure you...

Cuba’s newest ‘brigadier general’ central figure in North Korean arms smuggling caper

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Castro Promotes Military Officer (Son-in-Law) at Center of U.N. Smuggling Probe

Curiously, Lopez-Callejas' new rank of "brigadier general" was revealed at a ceremony of  Almacenes Universal S.A., the military company that runs Cuba's Port of Mariel facility -- in conjunction with Brazil's Odebrecht Group -- and is at the center of the recent Cuba-North Korean illegal arms smuggling operation.

According to the recent U.N. Panel of Experts report, which found this smuggling operation to violate international sanctions, the Port of Mariel was specifically chosen for this operation, in order to prevent detection and avoid any paper trail.

Moreover, all of the commercial facilities and transactions involved in the Cuba-North Korea smuggling probe fall under Castro's military business conglomerate, GAESA, run by Lopez-Callejas.

Yesterday, the U.N.'s Panel of Experts announced the probe continues into the illegal weapons shipments, seeking to identify the entities that participated in the operation and subjecting them to sanctions.

Surely, GAESA should be one of them. 

And the reason why the Castros continue to withhold info from U.N. investigators.
