He’s been serving Castro, Inc. for six decades, largely unnoticed, but the London trial and his daughter’s antics have brought him out of the shadows.

Meet the83-year-old éminence grise responsible for some of Castro, Inc.’s greatest triumphs in courts of law, including the defeat of the U.S. in the cases of Elian Gonzalez and the spies known as the Cuban Five.

Curiously, if you search online for photos of this loyal servant of Castro, Inc. you’ll find very few. And you will find no news articles about his lecture tour of U.S. colleges and universities either. Apparently, he has actually done that, as reported by Cuba’s ambassador to the U. S. José Ramón Cabañas Rodríguez, who proudly boasted of this fact on Twitter.

Is anyone surprised by the fact that this servant of totalitarian repression has received invitations to speak at American institutions of higher learning? Of course not. He represents the “correct” type of soul-crushing tyranny, admired by far too many American academics. Lord have mercy.

Loosely translated from Diario de Cuba

Cuban lawyer Rodolfo Dávalos Fernández has achieved a visibility that he did not have before since he appeared among the officials sent by the Cuban regime to the trial against him for a debt that dates back to 1982 and that has been sued by his creditors from the trust fund. CRF I investment in London.

The process has managed to show the world not only the bad reputation of Havana, which does not honor its lenders, but also how the judicial establishment operates, which serves as support and support even in international courts.

In this, Dávalos is not a minor figure. Being one of the most recognized jurists on the Island, at 83 years old he has enough weight to appear as an arbitrator in various litigations, most of the time from the shadows.

After he directed from Havana the judicial process promoted by Fidel Castro in favor of the five spies of the so-called Wasp Network, the importance of Rodolfo Dávalos in the shadow of the power apparatus became evident.

In that context, he wrote a book about the case, titled United States vs. Five Heroes: A Silenced Trial, in which he defends his thesis that the process against the agents recruited by Havana exhibited “the breakdown of the US judicial system.”

Dávalos is one of the strategists behind the corporate network of the Cuban regime in dozens of countries since he rose from a simple lawyer in the so-called Revolutionary Courts in Matanzas, starting in 1960, until in 1993 he became an advisor to the joint venture Cuban Spanish Cubanacán S.A., of which he ended up being CEO in 1997, during a period in which he also directed the International Law Firm.

The trust that Fidel Castro placed in him became evident when the dictator integrated him into the team of specialists in his propaganda campaign for the return to Cuba of Elián González, called the Battle of Ideas.

Dávalos Fernández serves as president of the Cuban Society of Commercial Law and of the Cuban Court of International Commercial Arbitration, but he is also an arbitrator of the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), based in Paris.

  1. Again, he looks like an old Tom Hagen, consigliere to the Corleone Mafia clan in The Godfather, and I don’t mean just physically. Of course, the Castro clan was bound to have such servants.
