Castro’s Son Involved In Internet Love Prank, Reveals Security Info

June 15, 2009

Florida (ChattahBox) – Antonio Castro Soto del Valle, son of Fidel Castro, has found himself a the end of a rather embarrassing prank involving what he thought to be a beautiful woman he was romancing.

Castro originally began speaking to a woman he knew as Claudia Valencia, a dark haired sports journalist from Columbia, in October. Over the months, he became enamored with her, sending her confessions of wanting to make love to her.

Unfortunately for Castro, it wasn’t the beautiful Claudia he was sending those messages to. It was 46-year-old Florida man, Luis Domínguez, a Cuban-born American who had set out to prove a point against the alleged security of the Castro family.

Not only did Castro give Claudia his personal address and phone number, but he gave her forewarning and details of a trip to Mexico, and told her that he had no bodyguards around his home, The Miami Herald reports.

He also told her that he had a personal Apple computer, a Blackberry with full Internet access, and various other material items that go against the so-called “moral regime” of the Castro government.

Because of this, Domínguez approached Miami-based television station Americateve, with what he felt were details important to showing the Cuban people that their leaders did not follow by the same harsh restrictions they were expected to live by.

“This is journalism because the BlackBerry, the computers, the travels, in any country that would be common and normal, but in the case of Cuba, he lives in a world like no other Cuban. We’re showing the audience the two Cubas,” Miguel Cossio, the Americateve producer was quoted as saying.

“That supposed revolutionary morality, Antonio does not live it.”

The eight month affair has not been commented on by the Castro family, and the email being used by Castro, as well as his phone number, have been disabled. His account has been signed into multiple time, but Domínguez assumes that it is Cuba’s Intelligence Agency trying to catch him out, a likely assumption now that the story has gone public.
