HAVANA, March 8. The Cuban government reports the opening of an investigative file in the Prosecutor’s Office for “serious errors”to the recently dismissed former Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Planning, Alejandro Gil Fernández.

As a result of a rigorous investigation, serious errors committed by the former Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Planning, Alejandro Gil Fernández, were determined in the performance of his duties.

Taking into account the level of verification of the facts, and at the proposal of the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic, the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Party and the Council of State approved that the competent bodies of the Ministry of the Interior initiate the corresponding actions for the total clarification of these behaviors.

From the very beginning of these actions, the person involved has acknowledged serious accusations and consequently, renounced his status as a member of the Central Committee of the Party and as a Deputy to the National Assembly of People’s Power.

As part of the invariable ethics of the Cuban Revolution during these 65 years, the leadership of our Party and Government has never allowed, nor will it ever allow, the proliferation of corruption, simulation and insensitivity.

Under this principle, it will maintain, legality, permanent confrontation, transparency and zero tolerance to this type of demonstrations that affect our people, aware that the higher the level of trust placed in a cadre, the greater the rigor and intransigence. with which to act in the face of events of this nature.

As expected, the enemy will unleash a new propaganda campaign against Cuba, but our people, as we are accustomed to, will remain firm in their Party and Government, faithful to the legacy of the Commander in Chief and the teachings of Army General Raúl Castro Ruz.
