Just because Cuba’s 11-million slaves are forced to live a miserable existence in fourth-world squalor, deprived not only of the most basic freedoms but also proper nutrition and medical care, does not mean their slave masters, the Castro family, must suffer along with them. In all honesty, what’s the purpose of having slaves and profiting from their stolen labor if you can’t live a glamorous and luxurious life jet-setting around the world and sailing your yacht to exotic destinations?
Nevertheless, all the riches and privileges that come with being a member of Cuba’s slave master family also comes with its trials and tribulations. Such as when news reporters come across one of them living the marvelous life of the rich and communist and start photographing them. For Fidel Castro’s son Tony, however, his father has taught him well how to deal with these annoyances; just send some thugs to beat them up.
Bodyguards of Fidel Castro’s son attack Turkish reporters in Bodrum
Three of Antonio Castro Soto Del Valle‘s — the son of former Cuban leader Fidel Castro — bodyguards attacked photographers from a news agency for filming the younger Castro during his vacation in Turkey’s resort district of Bodrum on Wednesday, according to the Do?an news agency.
Castro reportedly had dinner at a restaurant in Bodrum with 12 friends, who included some Turks, on Wednesday night. Castro later thanked each employee who served him at the restaurant. As Castro left the restaurant at around 11 p.m., he noticed that he was being caught on camera by a Do?an reporter and went back inside in a rage, according to Do?an. Castro waited in the restaurant’s kitchen for a while before he went out and left the premises in his car, which was brought to the front of the restaurant.
After Castro left the area, a Turk and two Cubans, who were reportedly his bodyguards, punched and threatened the Do?an photographers, attempting to take their cameras. Photojournalist Ya?ar Anter sustained a minor injury as a result of being punched. While the two Cuban bodyguards fled the scene, the Turkish bodyguard, H.K., was briefly detained by the police. A group of people who accompanied Castro at the restaurant also left in a van.
Castro recently came to Bodrum with his 50-meter boat from the Greek island of Mykonos and booked five en suite rooms at a luxury hotel for himself and those accompanying him.
