Cuban TV Runs Video of Fidel Castro

HAVANA TIMES, Aug. 24 – Cuba’s state-run television showed a video on Sunday where former Cuban President Fidel Castro appears during a meeting last Saturday with young Venezuelan law graduates, reported IPS.  No mention was made if the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution intends to resume public life.

Despite having stepped down as president temporarily at the end of July 2006 following intestinal surgery, and permanently in February 2008, Fidel is still officially the head of the all-powerful Cuban Communist Party.

A picture of a healthy looking Fidel Castro with visiting Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa was published on Sunday on the front page of Juventud Rebelde newspaper.
