GOVERNMENT OFTEN SEARCHES TRAVELERS ON "EL SPIRITUANO" TRAIN By Héctor Trujillo Pis, Cuba Free Press.

CAIBARIéN - Agents of the Minister of the Interior (MININT) often subject passengers and operators of train No. 8 known as "El Spirituano" to searches, according to reports by riders. The train travels to the nation's capital on alternate dates and upon its return goes through Santa Clara, picking up passengers along the way.

Recently, one elderly woman whose name is not available caused a violent scene with the officers when she refused to be searched. According to witnesses, she said, "You have to respect me. I am not a criminal!"
