    So you’re saying that if it “walks like a duck and quacks like a duck” but lacking the DNA evidence, I can’t call it a duck?

    Will they be discussing how several officials of the Cuban Communist Party and directors of state enterprises have been identified in the Panama Papers as having set up off-shore bank accounts? What were the sources of funds passing through these off-shore accounts? What was the purpose of these accounts? How were these accounts connected to the Castro regime?

    These and many more interesting questions deserve answers.

    “Officials from Cuba’s Communist party used a Swiss lawyer to establish offshore companies for their global business activities, the so-called Panama Papers have revealed.”

    Weird comment. I have never blamed the Castros for every crime in the region.

    curt: Moses is one of the contributors who have experienced living in Cuba and having a Cuban family. You should note in these columns that it is those with such experiences that are the main critics of the Castro family regime and the Communist Party of Cuba – it reflects actual experience,
    On the other hand there are those who have either never even been to Cuba or only for brief periods who think that the poverty imposed upon the people of Cuba is appropriate, but do not choose to experience it themselves. They are almost invariably US citizens who don’t like their own political system, but are content to live under it.
    My own knowledge of Cuba and of the regime, is based upon having my home, wife, numerous relatives and friends there. My comments in general reflect not only my own views, but those of the aforementioned and the folks I speak to when waiting to purchase bread from the Panderia, at the two weekly markets or purchasing food from vendors on the street.
    Having knowledge of the Castros should not be thought of as necessarily being in support of them now or in the past.
