El Duende, a commentator of La Radio Miami reports that Cuban born José M. Miranda, a former executive of TV Marti, a propaganda television station of the United States government, was convicted by a Federal court in Miami of embezzling $112,000 from the funds of that TV station, which nobody sees in Cuba. He was sentenced to 27 months in jail. In addition, he will have to pay an $8,000 fine for having demanded under-the-table payments from a video productions company which sold products to TV Marti.
El Duende reports that TV Martí is under the control of extreme right elements in Miami.
JG: The funding of TV Martí comes from the pockets of U.S. taxpayers. It has been denounced as a corruption laden enterprise of the Miami Mafia.
