The Castro Mafia in action: Don Fidelone wanted $55 millions to free Canadian businessman

Sept. 29 - Cuba offered to free jailed Canadian executive Cy Tokmakjian in return for $55-million and company assets, his company said on Monday, but the deal fell through because the firm didn’t have the money and the businessman wanted to clear his name.
Tokmakjian, 74, founder and chief executive of transportation firm Tokmakjian Group, was sentenced to 15 years in prison on Friday after being convicted of bribery and other economic charges in a case that lawyers and diplomats called a chilling development for potential foreign investors.
After Tokmakjian was detained in 2011, company lawyers met with Cuban officials about the case, said Lee Hacker, the Tokmakjian Group’s vice-president for finance.
“They were ... told ‘We’re taking all your assets and in addition you’re going to have to send another $55-million down before Cy will be released,’” Hacker said.
It was the first time the company had revealed the Cuban demand, which could not be immediately confirmed with authorities in Havana. Tokmakjian’s case has been shrouded in secrecy – he was held for two and a half years before being charged.
Hacker said he was told by the company’s lawyers that there was no basis for the $55-million figure. “It was just a number that was thrown out,” he told Reuters.
Other attempts at negotiation failed partly because Tokmakjian does not want to admit to crimes he has not committed, his son Raffi said.
Cuba seized about $100-million worth of the firm’s assets on the island and also sent two Tokmakjian aides to prison.
Hacker said Cuba could choose to expel Tokmakjian, or Cuba and Canada could agree that he serve his sentence in Canada under a treaty that governs the international transfer of prisoners.
Conservative Member of Parliament Peter Kent, whose constituency includes the Tokmakjian Group’s headquarters, confirmed the businessman could be transferred under the treaty.
But, he said Canada’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, John Baird, had suggested to his Cuban counterpart following the verdict that “the humane thing to do would be to simply deport him.”
Hacker said the case stemmed partly from salary top-up payments to Tokmakjian employees in joint venture businesses and a decision to hire the wife of Cuba’s former deputy of minister of sugar, Nelson Labrada, in Tokmakjian’s hotel division.
“They’re alleging that it was improper,” Hacker said. “But she worked independently, had nothing to do with any sugar products or anything that was in Nelson’s domain and ... we had the proper approvals on that.”
Labrada was among 14 Cuban defendants in the case, all of whom were convicted. He has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.
Hacker defended Tokmakjian Group’s practice of making incentive payments to employees of joint ventures that were majority-owned by Cuban state entities. Cy Tokmakjian was convicted of bribery partly on the basis of those payments.
“We would pay incentives to our staff in Cuba like every company does in Cuba,” Hacker said.
Cuba legalized the payment of incentives, salary top ups, in 2007 but the change did not extend to joint ventures, leaving companies exposed. Hacker said the company did not believe at the time that there was anything illegal about the payments.
The charge of economic crimes against the state involved the late delivery of unspecified equipment. Tokmakjian distributed Hyundai vehicles and construction equipment in Cuba, as well as other mining gear.
The Tokmakjian Group, which did an estimated $80-million in business annually with Cuba until it was shuttered in September, 2011, filed claims against Cuba worth more than $200-million through the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris and an Ontario court.
The case has strained Cuba’s relationship with Canada, one of its biggest trading partners. Western diplomats have said it would dissuade foreign investors at a time Cuba is actively seeking partners from abroad to do business.
Cuba has yet to comment on the verdict or the sentencing. A call on Monday to the Cuban embassy in Ottawa for comment was not returned. The Globe and Mail
 

After only one day: Cuba bans Che Guevara and Hugo Chavez perfumes

Sept. 27 - El Nuevo Herald (Spanish)

The Cuban government has said it will take disciplinary action against a state pharmaceutical company that created perfumes named Ernesto Che Guevara and Hugo Chavez.
In a statement in the official Granma newspaper, the government described the project as "a serious error".
"The symbols of the Revolution are and will always be sacred," it read.
The colognes - Ernesto and Hugo - were unveiled on Thursday by state a laboratory in the capital, Havana.
Labiofam said Ernesto, the cologne named after the Argentine-born revolutionary who help Fidel Castro take over in Cuba in 1959, would be a woodsy and refreshing citric scent with notes of talcum powder.
Hugo, named after the late Venezuelan president, would offer a softer, fruitier fragrance with hints of mango and papaya.
"They will be very attractive colognes, but the names also mean a lot to us," said Isabel Gonzalez, vice-president for research and development for Labiofam during the launch.
But the project was mocked in the social networks and criticized by supporters of the Cuban Revolution, who considered it disrespectful.
'Irresponsible action'
Labiofam had been in the process of developing stylized bottles and labels for the products before putting them on sale in Cuba and overseas.
"We didn't want to create propaganda, but rather pay homage to them and help their names endure," said on Thursday Cuban biochemist Mario Valdes, who led the scent design team.
The company said it had obtained the agreement of the families of Che Guevara and Hugo Chavez to use their names in the colognes. But that has now been denied by the Cuban government.
"The details of this irresponsible action were discussed in detail on Friday with the company's director and the employees who presented the products, which were still being developed," read the statement of the Executive Committee of the Ministers' Council, headed by Cuban President Raul Castro.
"The appropriate measures will be taken to deal with this serious error.
"Such initiatives will never be accepted either by our people or by the Revolutionary Government."  BBC News

 

Doing business in a country with no laws: Canadian Businessman receives a 15-Year sentence

Sept. 27 - A Canadian automobile executive has been sentenced to 15 years in Cuban prison on corruption-related charges that officials here call part of a broad campaign against graft, his company said Saturday.
Ontario-based Tokmakjian Group said the charges against its president, Cy Tokmakjian, 74, were concocted as an excuse to seize the automotive firm's $100 million in assets in Cuba. The company described the case Saturday as "absurd" and a "travesty of justice."
The company's Cuban offices were raided in 2011 as Cuba launched an anti-graft drive that has swept up foreign business executives from at least five nations as well as government officials and dozens of Cuban employees at key state-run companies.
Foreign business people have long considered payoffs ranging from a free meal to cash deposits in overseas accounts to be an unavoidable cost of doing business in Cuba. President Raul Castro has said that rooting out rampant corruption is one of the country's most important challenges.
More than 150 foreign business people and dozens of small South American and European companies have been kicked out of the country under the anti-graft drive. Several dozen defendants have ended up in jail, including a few foreigners and high government officials accused of influence-peddling and taking bribes.
Such cases, and questions about their fairness, have chilled many current and potential investors in Cuba, which is trying to attract foreign capital to jumpstart the stagnant economy.
Cuba's judicial system is known for speedy proceedings behind closed doors with little or no media access. Cuban officials have said little about the Tokmakjian case beyond announcing last year that the Tokmakjian Group's operating license had been rescinded due to unspecified actions "that are contrary to the principles and ethics that should characterize commercial activity, and contravene Cuban judicial order."
Tokmakjian managers Claudio Vetere and Marco Puche got 12- and 8-year sentences, respectively, company vice president Lee Hacker told The Associated Press. He said the company's lawyers were notified of the sentences on Friday.
The Canadian company said its president had been allowed to call only four of the 18 expert witnesses he wanted to testify.
"The deception taking place in Cuba is beyond imagination," the company said. "Lack of due process doesn't begin to describe the travesty of justice." Associated Press
 

Cuban couple reunited in U.S. after year-long sea odyssey

Sept. 26 - Almost a year after he smuggled his way out of Cuba on a homemade boat, Jose Caballero was reunited late Thursday with his wife who survived a harrowing sea voyage of her own last month.
The two embraced tightly at the Greyhound bus terminal in Austin, Texas, hours after Mailin Perez crossed the border from Mexico, taking advantage of a U.S. policy that allows entry to Cubans arriving by land.
"Right now we're so happy, but exhausted from all the tension. There were so many desperate moments," said Caballero.
Perez, 30, was one of a group of Cuban migrants rescued at sea by Mexican fishermen this month off the Yucatan peninsula badly sunburned and dehydrated after three weeks adrift.
Only 15 of the 32 passengers of her boat survived the journey from Manzanillo in eastern Cuba, with 15 dying at sea, and two more dying after they were rescued.
"It was such a battle to get here," Perez said later, as she sat down to a traditional Cuban dinner of chicken, and "congri" (rice and beans) prepared by her husband. "I'm happy, but sad for the ones who didn't make it."
The group set off on August 7, and were forced to fashion a makeshift sail for their vessel after the motor failed early in the journey. One by one the passengers died as supplies of food, and then water, ran out. Their bodies were thrown overboard.
Caballero, 40, said his wife lost eight cousins on the boat, adding that she had been an assistant at a blood bank in Cuba and brought medical supplies with her.
"For her it's going to be hard. Right now she is happy she made it, but imagine the trauma she feels," he said.
Caballero left Cuba by the same route in December on a boat carrying 47 people, and is now a maintenance worker at a trucking company in Austin. "We were at sea for only nine days and I still have nightmares about drowning," he said.
Mexican officials detained the Cubans for two weeks before releasing them, saying Cuba had not recognized them as its citizens.
Under the "wet foot, dry foot policy" of the United States, Cuban migrants who make it onto U.S. soil are allowed to remain while those intercepted at sea are turned back.
Cubans seeking to flee the communist-run island are heading in increasing numbers to Central America or southern Mexico and then making a long journey overland to reach the United States.
U.S. authorities say 16,200 Cubans arrived without visas at the border with Mexico in the past 11 months, the highest number in a decade.
Caballero said his wife had previously tried unsuccessfully to leave Cuba four times by boat and he tried to persuade her not to try again. "But there was no stopping her," he said.
The couple left two children behind with relatives in Cuba, a boy aged 11 and a girl aged four.
"That's our hope now, to bring them to the United States," said Caballero. "But not the way we came. Not by sea."

As migrants flee eastern Cuba, a town mourns those lost at sea

Sept. 17 - Eighteen-year-old Miguel Lopez Maldonado boarded a homemade boat last month with 31 others, leaving behind this sleepy fishing town on Cuba's southeast coast to seek a new life in the United States.
The motor broke down after a couple days, and the craft drifted for three weeks. One by one, the passengers died of thirst, the survivors left with no option but to throw the bodies overboard.
By the time the Mexican navy spotted them 150 miles off the Yucatan peninsula, 15 had died, including Lopez Maldonado. Of the 17 rescued, two died in a Mexican hospital.
Lopez Maldonado's parents say they don't understand why their son left. But others here say many young Cubans see no future in a state-run economy, under U.S. sanctions for 50 years, with few opportunities for private enterprise.
"Young people today do not think like my generation did. They are looking for something more that they can’t find here," the dead teen's father, Miguel Lopez Vega, said, sobbing, in the living room of the family's home as neighbors stopped by to offer comfort.
"My son wanted to leave Cuba since he was 15. He didn’t want to live in this country."
The tragedy, the worst Cuban migrant boat disaster in two decades, is part of a growing illegal exodus from eastern Cuba - a region famous as the launching pad of the 1959 revolution in the nearby Sierra Maestra mountains.
U.S. authorities say 14,000 Cubans arrived without visas at the border with Mexico in the past 11 months, the highest number in a decade.
In Manzanillo, a run-down colonial city of 130,000 in eastern Granma province, residents say as many as five boats, with up to 30 passengers, depart in weeks with favorable weather.
Passengers in last month's voyage, who were aged 16 to 36, each paid the equivalent of $400 to $600 for the 675-mile trip.
The situation threatens to further strain relations between Cuba and the United States. Cuba argues that U.S. policy foments illegal and dangerous departures by granting Cubans a special right of entry not offered to other nationalities.
The wave of migration also exposes the fragility of President Raul Castro's market-oriented reforms, in which independent farming and small businesses have been legalized in an attempt rebuild a private sector wiped out in 1959.
TEARS AND PRAYERS
Joaquín de La Paz, who works at a rice mill, lost a daughter, a son and two grandsons in last month's tragedy. He said economic hardship and a lack of jobs in Manzanillo, once a busy port handling sugar from nearby cane fields, had made people desperate.
De La Paz, 62, said that even though his daughter was a teacher and his son worked for the health ministry, neither earned enough to satisfy their needs.
"The kids see people leave Cuba who never even had a bicycle, and then by the time they return within a year their family situation is improved," he said.
"Look at me. After 43 years of work, I haven't been able to acquire anything, except sadness and sorrow for my family."
One granddaughter decided at the last minute not to join her mother and brother, but De la Paz frets that she will be next. The girl’s 16-year-old brother, Hector, was rescued, but he died on the way to a hospital.
De la Paz's wife, Xiomara Milan, sobbed alongside him as she recounted how they raised pigs to feed the family. She said all she had left was the hope her grandson would be returned for burial, adding the family did not have the money to repatriate his body.
Family members and neighbors said the government and state-run media have been silent about the tragedy. Only the Catholic Church has offered solace, they said.
A Mass for the victims was held in the town's main Catholic church on Friday, and prayers were offered "for those who feel the need to find another country to live." One speaker urged people to think hard about the decision and "look for safer paths."
There were also prayers that Cuban authorities "achieve the necessary material and spiritual progress" of the country.
Relatives of the victims said their only information has come from survivors detained by immigration authorities in Mexico, who have been allowed to call home twice a week.
They are pleading with Mexican authorities not to deport the survivors back to Cuba, and to allow them to continue their journey to the U.S. border.
Niurka Aguilar, the mother of one survivor, Maylin Perez, said it was her daughter's fifth attempt to leave. Perez, 30, was hoping to join her husband, who made the trip nine months ago and now lives in Texas.
"If they send her back, she will just try again," said Aguilar.  Reuters

A 62 year old Canadian man says he lost $90,000 when he 'married' a 25 year old Cuban woman

Sept. 16 - A Quebec man says he's out $90,000 after falling in love with a Cuban woman, marrying her, and moving her to Canada.
He also claims that when she arrived, she was pregnant with another man's baby and left him after six days.
Michel Beaudry told QMI Agency that he wants to share his story to help other Canadians avoid making the same mistake.
The 62-year-old met a 25-year-old woman while on an all-inclusive Cuban vacation in March 2013.
"At first," said Beaudry, "I thought it was impossible that she would want to be with me."
The relationship blossomed, bolstered by Beaudry making about 10 trips to Cuba to visit. They married in September 2013.
In June 2014, his wife was given permission by the Canadian government to move to Canada.
From the first day, she explained to Beaudry that she didn't want to lead a normal married life with him.
"She said she loved me like a father figure. I slept on the sofa while she slept in my room."
Beaudry says his wife also announced she was pregnant. He had a vasectomy, and knew he could be responsible for a child that wasn't his.
Six days after her arrival, she asked for $50,000 to buy a home for her relatives in Cuba. When Beaudry refused, she packed her bags and left.
"She lied all along," said Beaudry. "She only wanted money."
Reynaldo Marquez, Beaudry's lawyer, told QMI that they are seeking an annulment of the marriage. "I want her to leave the country," Beaudry said. Calgary Sun

 

The Castro brothers made $700 million in one year from their slave doctors working in Brazil

Sept. 4 - Since August 2013, Cuba has collected over US$700m from the Brazilian government in exchange for the services of 11,456 Cuban medical professionals working in over 2,700 towns and cities across the country. The Brazilian government recently announced that the programme will continue next year, with total payments amounting to US$511m.
Analysis
The Cuban doctors participate in Brazil's Mais Médicos (More Doctors) programme, which aims to bring medical services to remote or underserved parts of the country by employing overseas doctors, mainly from Cuba. It was created in response to the mass protests that rocked Brazil in June 2013 over the poor quality of public services, including healthcare. The programme pays each participant a salary of around US$4,500 a month. However, the participation of Cuban doctors is organised through the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). The Brazilian government disburses the payments to the PAHO, which then transfers the monies to the Cuban government after taking a 5% administrative commission. The Cuban government pays the medical professionals working in Brazil a monthly salary of US$1,245, and pockets the rest.
With 440,000 health professionals in a country of 11m people, Cuba has one of the best doctor-to-patient ratios in the world. As the government has sought to cut costs and "update" the economy since 2008 under President Raúl Castro, it has cut the number of doctors operating on the island and offered to sell their services abroad.
Currently, the sale of services abroad is Cuba's largest source of hard currency: in 2014, the government estimates that it will collect US$8.2bn from these deals. Around 50,000 Cuban health professionals work in 66 countries worldwide, although around half of those work in Venezuela, with an additional 11,456 in Brazil. The agreements with other foreign countries are similar to the Brazilian setup, with Cuban doctors paid less than the salary of local medical staff, and the remainder of their pay being transferred to the Cuban government.
Impact on the forecast
The Economist Intelligence Unit is not changing its macroeconomic forecasts in light of the renewal of the programme, but it will come as a relief to the Cuban government and will help to mitigate the scaling-back of the sale of professional services to Venezuela.

Cuba Strengthens Embargo: Limits Flow of Necessary Goods from US to Island

Sept. 3 - The Cuban government has implemented new laws Monday that strengthen the embargo between itself and the United States--not limiting tourism from the West into the country, but limiting the transport of necessary goods like underwear and soap from Cuban families in the United States to their relatives on the island.
The new law, Fox News reports, significantly reduces the amount of goods Cuban Americans can bring in their luggage and ship via boat from the United States. It also affects Westerners in other countries with strong Cuban populations, such as Spain, but experts believe it will not affect tourists who have no family on the island; they will be able to continue to pack their luggage freely.
While the United States bans tourism to the island, Cuban Americans with relatives on the island are legally allowed to bypass the embargo and visit the island, particularly because they are unlikely to spend money on tourism and support the regime. They, instead, spend their money on helping Cubans with no connections to the government who cannot leave the island.
Fox News reports that nearly $2 billion a year is spent on goods in the United States that Cuban Americans take home to their families. These goods include anything from underwear and shampoo to car tires--items necessary to live in Cuba that are very difficult to come by without having connections in the Castro government. "All the clothes and shoes that I have come from my granddaughters in Spain or my siblings in the U.S," one 75-year-old Cuban woman tells the Associated Press. She is worried she will run out of clothes due to Cuba's newly imposed embargo.
Opponents of the United States embargo on the Cuban communist regime, which bans Americans from spending money on tourism that supports the terrorist government, often claim that the United States does more harm than good to impoverished Cubans in maintaining the policy. Rarely does one hear the same critics raise their voices when the Castro government imposes its own restrictions, which only limit the influx of goods that keep many lives afloat on the island, rather than feeding directly into the government's coffers.
In addition to limiting the amount of goods going to average Cubans, the Associated Press notes that reducing the number of items allowed into the country forces Cubans abroad to send money via wire transfers that would have otherwise been spent directly on goods. While the Cuban government can do little to steal a cut of the price of one pair of underwear, it easily imposes high duties on money coming in from abroad, funding the lavish lifestyles of the Castro elite.
Cuban Americans, according to a poll released in June by Florida International University, strongly support ending the trade embargo on Cuba, but not reducing pressure on the communist government to change. Given the trade embargo's decades-long legacy of not toppling the Castro regime, Cuban Americans surveyed appear to support diversifying attempts to weaken and destroy the communist enterprise, including keeping Cuba on the United States' list of state sponsors of terrorism. The last time the question was asked in 2007, 71% of Cuban Americans supported "exile military attacks" on Cuba.  Breitbart
