Troubles at the Partagas Factory, in Havana, Cuba

Submitted by Oliver on November 13, 2012 – 7:03 amNo Comment

Rumor has it that the main person at the Partagas Factory, in Havana, Cuba has been arrested several days ago. That person is Abel Exposito that is also functioning as the director of the Partagas store in Havana.

Unfortunately, these rumors haven’t been officially confirmed or negated by official authorities yet, that’s why we apologize to our readers for the informatoin that could turn out as one false. However, many bloggers interested in the matter, claim that Mr.Exposito,
as well as his son and his ex-wife have been under arrest since last week. Exposito Senior is allegedly charged with smuggling puros to Switzerland and dealing with foreign currency.

They say that Mr. Exposito has ben selling Habanos to Swiss retailers, avoiding official channels and, thus, incurring the Habanos officials’ displeasure.

Anyway, this news is waiting to be proved with any official evidence or, otherwise, be officially disclaimed as discrediting.

We hope that everything settles down soon, since, according to another source, the authorities have already finished investigating Partagas, and the store has been re-opened.
