Cuba in Brazil's Presidential Debate

Wednesday, October 15, 2014
From Reuters:

Brazil's two presidential candidates traded accusations of lies, corruption and nepotism on Tuesday night in a bruising television debate that had no clear winner ahead of the hotly contested Oct. 26 election runoff [...]

[Aecio] Neves denied he would reduce the role of state banks such as Brazilian development bank BNDES, whose loan book is almost three times the size of the World Bank's. But he called for more transparency in the bank's lending, and disclosure of loans to communist-run Cuba to build a container port at Mariel.

Neves criticized [Dilma] Rousseff's government for paying 11,400 Cuban doctors working in Brazil one third of their salaries with the rest going to the Cuban government.
