The Ascent Of The Spy

14ymedio, Marcelo Hernandez, Havana, 29 March 2017 — It was only a
matter of time before the spy Fernando González Llort took over the
presidency of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples
(ICAP). Since his return to Cuba after serving a 15-year sentence
in the United States, many predicted his rise to that position.

In June 2014, González was appointed vice president of ICAP and on
Tuesday it was announced that he was replacing Kenia Serrano Puig, who
had served in the presidency of the institution for eight years.

The official note on the replacement was sparse in its goodbye to
Serrano and did not include the usual formula of “she will take on other
responsibilities”

The official note on the replacement was sparse in its goodbye to
Serrano and did not include the usual formula of “she will take on other
responsibilities.” The text didn’t even describe her “excellent
performance at the head” of the institution. In the grammar of power,
this reservation does not bode well for the woman.

Since their return to the island, all the members of the so-called Wasp
Network have held positions in official bodies, mostly as
vice-presidents. González Llort is the first to manage an organization.

In 1987, shortly after graduating with a Gold Diploma in International
Political Relations, González Llort was part of a tank brigade in
Angola. In the rest of his biography, he emphasizes his participation in
the Wasp Network that concluded with his arrest and imprisonment in the
United States.

For decades the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP)
has been a front for Cuban Intelligence

For decades, ICAP has been a front for Cuban Intelligence. Since their
founding, institutions of this type have existed in the rest of the
socialist countries. Instead of presenting themselves with the
ideological tint of the Marxist court, they wrap themselves in the
clothing of friendship between peoples.

The position of ICAP president can lead its occupant to higher spheres,
as was the case of Sergio Corrieri, who was part of the Central
Committee of the Party and was a member of the State Council. On the
other hand, Kenia Serrano, who had previously been a member of the
National Bureau of the Young Communists Union (UJC), was only able to
ascend to a seat in Parliament.
