GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATES HOUSING OFFICIALS FOR MULTIPLE OWNERS By Juan Antonio Sánchez, Cuba Free Press.

PINAR DEL RIO - The Technical Department of Investigations (TDI) is holding two officials of the Housing Directorate of the town of San Juan and Martinez in connection with what some call an inexplicable case of multiple owners, among other things.

The two are Raciel Puente Ajete, a manager, and Faustino Chacon, an inspector. They are being held for questions involving abuse of power, authorizing the purchase and sale of several lots and other violations that have come to light.

This kind of case is being reported daily in today's Cuba, where the average salary doesn't meet basic needs. Some say that public officials and workers are forced into committing crimes so as to survive, finding prices at farm stores excessive and the rate of exchange for the Cuban peso versus the US dollar at 21 to 1.
