Head of Cuban state-run newspaper sacked over ‘errors’

-

Cuba's Communist Party sacked the director of state-run newspaper Granma after "errors" in management, the daily reported Thursday.

"In response to errors committed in the fulfillment of his responsibilities, the party directorate decided to release comrade Pelayo Terry Cuervo as director of Granma newspaper," a brief note on its front page said.

The 50-year-old, in charge since 2013, will be replaced until further notice by deputy director Oscar Sanchez Serra, the daily added.

The note gave no detail of the "errors" at the country's main newspaper.

The official newspaper of the ruling Communist Party, Granma had for decades provided a platform for former ruler Fidel Castro to publish editorials, speeches and musings.

The publication is named after the boat on which Castro, his brother and current president Raul, and other revolutionary leaders arrived in Cuba to launch their revolution in 1956.
