Octogenarian General Removed from Cuban Cabinet

HAVANA – Gen. Antonio Enrique Lusson, 86, has been relieved of his duties as one of the vice presidents of Cuba’s Council of Ministers, according to a note published Thursday in the official gazette.

The announcement, dated Feb. 23, says the Council of State agreed to “release” Lusson from the position he occupied since 2010 and that “other functions will be assigned to him.”

Born in 1930, Lusson was a founding member of Cuba’s Communist Party and occupies a seat on the party’s Central Committee.

He bears the title of Hero of the Republic of Cuba.

Lusson, an early follower of Fidel Castro and an officer in the rebel army that ousted dictator Fulgencio Batista in 1959, is a two-star general who has held a succession of senior posts in Communist Cuba.
