official stole 7 million pesos from a camping company – 2024-04-13 07:28:42

The official press reported on an official who was sentenced to 18 years in prison for having stolen 7,968,669 Cuban pesos (CUP) while working at the state company Campismo Popular de Sancti Spíritus.

According to the state newspaper Escambraythe subject, identified as Oscar Ramón Rodríguez Socarrás, used his position as a specialist B in Economic Management of the institution to seize the money through the Virtual Bandec system, where the company’s bank accounts were located.

The note indicates that Rodríguez Socarrás used access credentials and electronic tools to manipulate the company’s accounts, transferring money to be used for his personal benefit. This illegal practice had been going on since September 2022, and was discovered and stopped until May of last year.

His modus operandi included editing the company’s account statements to hide the illegal transfers made to his account, demonstrating a level of premeditation and breach of trust that was impossible to deny in court.

“Operated the accounts (current, investment and financial intermediation) in national currency of said entity, of the Ministry of Tourism (Mintur), in the Virtual Bandec service, a bank-client remote connection system, which allows various operations to be carried out from the office or other place, through the Internet or the Cuban Intranet, without having to go to the corresponding branch of the Bank of Credit and Commerce (Bandec),” explains the official media.

To eliminate illegally made transfers, Rodríguez Socarrás edited the account statements using a PDF to Word document converter.

Fraudulent operations by date and amount

The state media shared a list of some of the illegal transactions made by the detainee, which began in September 2022 with a transfer of 86,566 CUP.

In January 2023, the largest amount embezzled in a single month was recorded, with 1,650,000 CUP transferred to his personal account.

In May 2023, an operation of 100,000 CUP was detected, which was the last carried out before his arrest.

The note states that the subject was able to do all this due to the irresponsibility of the company’s directors, who facilitated much of the work. In that sense, they indicated that a drawer was found in which there were several “users, passwords, keys, scanned Telebanking cards, electronic signatures…etc”, information that should not be left within the reach of anyone.

As a consequence, in addition to the sentence against Rodríguez Socarrás, several administrative fines were also implemented against other members of the company’s management for failures in the preservation of assets.

Likewise, a renovation was carried out in the main management positions of the state company. For its part, this new management claims to have already taken the necessary measures to amend the situation and prevent it from recurring.
