This is getting good now
The poor little Cuban government is the target of a “new slander by external and internal enemies attempting to distort Cuban realities and undermine the international prestige of the revolution and its moral strength.”
Larry Moonze from The Post, “the paper that digs deeper”, is picking up a story Enemies attempting to distort Cuba’s moral strength
The Cuban government stated that that new slander campaign was being orchestrated against the revolution around the death from acute pancreatitis of Cuban Juan Wilfredo Soto Garcia on May 8 in the Santa Clara Arnaldo Milián Castro Provincial Hospital.
“Counterrevolutionary elements have unscrupulously fabricated the lie that Soto Garcia’s death was the result of an alleged beating by agents of the Ministry of the Interior, a lie that was rapidly amplified by the disinformation media, fundamentally in Europe and the United States, where even certain government spokespersons have expressed concern over this alleged event,” read in part the note.
The authorities explained that on May 6, Soto Garcia was admitted to the aforementioned hospital with intense abdominal pain provoked by acute pancreatitis. It stated that Soto Garcia was subsequently diagnosed with descompensation brought about by other internal disorders such as dilated myocardiopathy, Hyperlipidemia (excess of fat in the blood), diabetes and chronic hepatitis produced by fatty liver disease.
The government stated that the autopsy performed on the patient established death from natural causes, “the preliminary one being “multifactorial shock resulting from multi-organ failure due to pancreatitis.” There were no signs of internal or external violence.”
When that autopsy is independently verified by Amnesty International or some other credible international organization, then I’ll believe it.
The article goes on to say that the Cuban government has “patiently endured the implacable disinformation campaigns about human rights, coordinated from the United States and some countries within the European Union that demand from us no less than unconditional surrender and the immediate dismantling of our socialist system while encouraging, directing and assisting domestic mercenaries in breaking the law. The Revolution has always been defended with the truth and invincible strength of the people, who trust in the strength of the ideas of justice which made it possible.”
I love it when the Cuban government tries to defend itself. It’s just so silly. I can’t believe that they believe that anyone believes what they believe
