Odds and ends

  • The vice president of the Sancti Spiritus provincial Poder Popular assembly was removed from his post last week, as were officials in other provincial offices, for abusing their offices and misappropriating state resources for personal profit, Granma reports. The assembly’s president also resigned even though she was not implicated. Those who are implicated will face criminal charges.

  • Here’s an official website where citizens list homes they want to exchange in Cuba’s real estate market where people trade one home for another and occasionally pass some cash to make it a fair trade when the properties are of disparate values. This listing has a house with a “car-porsch.”
