HAVANA -- Twenty-six patients at Cuba's largest hospital for the mentally ill died this week during a cold snap, the government said Friday.

Human rights leaders cited negligence and a lack of resources as factors in the deaths, and the Health Ministry launched an investigation that it said could lead to criminal proceedings.

A Health Ministry communique read on state television blamed "prolonged low temperatures that fell to 38 degrees Fahrenheit (4 Celsius) in Boyeros," the neighborhood where Havana's Psychiatric Hospital is located.

This blog-post lacks writing creativity. There’s no creativity or originality on this blog what happen to Nicolás "El Periodista" Jiménez to busy with Raices business façade. I’m not writing this to whine about the current masquerade games and tactics of Raices Organization, nor I am trying to blame someone from their money fund-spending spree. But the objective that made me start writing today on this topic was something very different. Honestly speaking, I don’t see many people partying so much and taking personal trips within one month to different countries. I just wonder in regards of the money Raices raises and have. And when I come to think about it, who is the treasure? Another Felices college buddies mismanaging the Organization funds for self-interest Raices members. The problem that I see is lies with the intention of deceit people. Maybe the Florida State Attorney General’s Office probes into Raices Organization Fund mismanagement. I am sure felices operate with no oversight in spending money during travels for the organization. I am sure cash is giving to him to disburse during his travels. Not everybody is blind to Raices Games. Raices is a self-interest Group.
