Authorities want to evict family after 18 years

HAVANA, Cuba – March 13 (Ahmed Rodríguez Albacia, Jóvenes sin Censura / – A family that has been living in an Old Havana house
for 18 years says authorities now want to evict them.

Juan Alberto Parra charges officials from the local housing authority,
and the Committee for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR) have
threatened to evict his family in order to award the house to the son of
the CDR president.

Parra said he was resettled in the house 18 years ago after the
apartment in Central Havana -and indeed the whole building- in which he
lived collapsed.

Parra said he has addressed several government offices having
jurisdiction over the issue to appeal for permanent resettlement, but to
no avail.

Parra said he is 38 and suffers from brain cancer. He has three minor
daughters, all of whom are diabetics.
