HAVANA, March 20. /TASS/. A court in Cuba has sentenced a group of public sector employees to long prison terms for systematic theft and illegal marketing of hen eggs. The Cuban daily Granma says that over the past few years the eighteen convicts stole and illegally sold more than eight million eggs, for which they will now have to spend five to fifteen years in jail.
The court in Havana province found the accused guilty of "embezzlement, forgery of banking documents and illegal trade." One was sentenced to fifteen years, and all others, to five to twelve years.
Granma says the court ruled six convicts should compensate for the damage caused, estimated at about $371,000.
Thefts of hen eggs from Havana’s retailers were identified by a special check in 2012.
The fraudsters intentionally made accounting errors, sidestepped retail trade rules and forged documents.
