Cuban General Upset His "Paladar" Was Exposed

Thursday, January 16, 2014
Earlier this week, Leon Padron Azcuy, an independent journalist from Cubanet revealed that "Star Bien," one of those famed (and supposedly "private") Havana "paladares" featured in travel magazines, is owned by the son of Cuba's Minister of the Interior, the infamous General Abelardo Colome Ibarra.

Yesterday, General Colome Ibarra's son unexpectedly visited the independent journalist, scolded him and warned that "his father was very upset and would personally be dealing with this."

We urge the international community, including media watchdogs, to monitor Padron Azcuy's safety and well-being.
