Abridged and loosely translated from Diario de Cuba:

The occupation of political power in Cuba was relatively clear until Fidel Castro’s ailments and old age drove him away from public life. Even to the day of his death the long shadow of him was feared. However, at the gates of the VIII Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) it is not so evident who will have the reins of the Island: Raúl Castro, “the designated president” Miguel Díaz-Canel or the czar of the military emporium GAESA, the General Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Callejas.

As Raúl Castro himself announced, in the VIII Congress of the PCC the position of first secretary of the single party will go to Díaz-Canel. For his part, the regime’s spokesman, Humberto López, said on television this Thursday that “the generations born after 1959 will assume important roles” in the conclave to be held next week, from April 16 to 19.

Although the Cuban Constitution establishes in its Article 5 that the PCC “is the superior leading political force of society and the State”, Roberto Álvarez Quiñones has argued in this newspaper that “the highest instance of power is not the Political Bureau of the PCC nor its first secretary, but a group of soldiers that make up a mafia that does not face the people, acts behind the scenes and is accountable to no one. “

In this regard, Dimas Castellanos also wrote in this newspaper that during his tenure, from 2008 to 2018, Raúl Castro gave more wings to the military.

“The little of the state economy that works was under the control of the Grupo de Administración Empresarial SA (GAESA), which with some 322 companies generates around 89% of exports; 59% of tourism earnings; 24% of income of services, 60% of foreign currency transactions and 66% of sales in currencies of international value, a business group that does not render accounts of its financial procedures before the Comptroller of the Republic, “detailed Castellanos.

According to an investigation by the newspaper El Nuevo Herald, the Castro brothers relied on the López Callejas brothers, the aforementioned Luis Alberto and Guillermo Faustino, to violate the US embargo on the Havana regime for 37 years with a network of shell companies.

Through Acemex Management Company Limited, headquartered in the tax haven of Liechtenstein since 1984, the López-Callejas brothers expanded the control of the Cuban military over economic activity and concentrated maritime transport and global logistics in a few hands.

  1. You’d better believe the plan is for power to stay “in the family” of Raúl Castro. How that actually plays out once the faux general is dead is another question, but as long as he’s around, it will probably hold up.
