Cuba refutes any link up with Medicare fraud scheme

Cuba has denied that it has anything to do with the fraud scheme operated from the US. The defiance from Cuba’s foreign ministry came after a Cuban-American was accused in Florida with conniving to channel more than $30m (£19m) to Cuban banks. US prosecutors hold that the money was attained illegally from the Medicare Supplement Plan public health insurance system.

In a statement Johana Tablada, Cuba’s deputy director for US affairs has held that foreign commercial banks that maintain accounts in Cuban banks are indebted to operate in strict conformity with international and Cuban rules. She further added that it is not Cuba, but rather the United States that is the central country for money laundering in the world. The statement came after media reports in Miami linked Havana to the scheme.

The entire case hovers around Oscar Sanchez, who was detained by the FBI last week and indicted on Monday. US prosecutors claim that that he was implicated funneling the funds attained through false claims to Medicare Plan to Cuba through a chain of shell companies and banks in Canada and Trinidad. Sanchez faces up to 20 years in prison if found guilty.
