HAVANA TIMES — Cuban President Raul Castro attends a closed-door session of the island’s one chamber parliament on Saturday with the fight against corruption expected to be one of the topics of discussion.
Around 600 deputies are meeting Havana to participate in the session focusing on financial and budgetary matters, said the official media.
The Comptroller General of the Republic office, created in 2009 and headed by Gladys Bejerano, seeks to combat widespread corruption in state institutions and businesses on the island. It is expected to render a report on its management to the parliament.
It is also expected that Raul Castro will give the closing speech to the parliamentary session, part or all of which will most likely be made public in the following days.
The last time the parliament met was in March to approve a new investment law which seeks to promote the arrival of foreign capital to the island. The law just went into effect this week.
