María Elvira Salazar, Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja

María Elvira reacts to the death of López-Calleja: “These satraps are not immortal”

MIAMI, United States. — The Cuban-American representative María Elvira Salazar assured this Friday that the death of Division General of the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR) Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja will leave a notable void in the power elite that governs Cuba.

The Republican congresswoman recalled in Twitter that it was López-Calleja who controlled the economic structure through which the Island regime obtained large profits.

“Castroism loses a key man in its brutal machinery. General López-Calleja was in the business of power and enriched himself at the head of the military enterprise. These satraps are not immortal. May God have mercy on him, because the Cuban people will not have it!”, wrote María Elvira.


The death of the executive president of the FAR Business Administration Group (GAESA) was announced this morning by the island’s regime in a brief note which was reproduced by the Castro press.

“With deep regret we inform our people that in the early hours of the morning of this Friday, July 1, as a result of a cardiorespiratory arrest, Division General Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja, executive president of the Business Administration Group of the Revolutionary Armed Forces,” the official statement said.

In addition to his responsibilities in the FAR and at the head of GAESA, Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja held the positions of member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Party and deputy to the National Assembly of People’s Power.

The Castro regime stressed that the late general had “a brilliant record of services to the Homeland and the Cuban Revolution.”

Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja was also the son-in-law of Raúl Castro and father of Raúl Guillermo Rodríguez Castro, also known as “El Cangrejo”, who still serves as the former president’s personal bodyguard.
