THE DEATH of General Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja, known as the “czar” of the Cuban economy and Raúl Castro’s son-in-law, leaves a power vacuum within the business mafia run by the island’s military. Ana Olema discusses this and more in this installment of El Cuban.

Olema described López-Calleja as a chief who ran the Armed Forces business group (GAESA) that controls between 70% and 80% of the Cuban economy. Olema also gives us an x-ray of the most powerful families in Cuba, how GAESA operates and its background.

“The Cuban regime started boosting tourism around 1984, in order to finance the military forces, the Ministry of Interior,” Olema said.

The rapprochement between Biden and the Cuban regime, El Cuban

In addition, Olema dismantles the softening of Democrat Joe Biden’s administration with the Castro regime and how there has been a rapprochement between the Cuban regime and the American government. He also explains why a policeman kills a young black Cuban man at point blank range and no one is alarmed.
