HAVANA TIMES, July 8 — Esteban Morales, an often quoted Cuban historian who dared to sound an alarm about high-echelon corruption in Cuba has now won his reinstatement to the Communist Party.  He had been expelled over a year ago for sending up smoke signals.

Morales informed Thusday on his personal blog of the decision by the Communist Party’s Appeals Commission.

His expulsion had been highly questioned inside and outside Cuba by many supporters of the Cuban revolution.
