Havana, Cuba, Feb 12.— The best political and ideological work we can do is to work well every day, said President Miguel Diaz-Canel when he spoke on Monday at the annual meeting of the Ministry of Justice, which evaluated the results of the work during 2018 and projections for 2019 to raise the quality of legal services.
The president said it is a priority the monitoring of the policy of cadres, intrinsically linked to the efficient management of the skilled workforce. With the complexities that we are experiencing, he said, no problem has a single solution, we have to work with several alternatives and that capacity falls on highly qualified people.
When we talk about human resources management, he clarified, it is not a question of waiting each year for university graduates assigned by the Ministry of Labor and Social Security. We have to take good care of those who arrive, charm them, commit them and make them feel useful; but we also have to go out and look for qualified people who are not currently employed.

This action takes place in response to the international arrest warrant issued by the Interpol office in Havana and the extradition request submitted by the Office of the Attorney-General of the Republic, in conjunction with the Supreme People's Court and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
As a result of the investigations carried out by the Ministry of the Interior, García Testa was identified as an organizer of frustrated drug shipments to Cuba between 2011 and 2016, activities for which 16 people - seven of them Costa Ricans- were sanctioned by the Cuban courts with prison sentences of between ten and 20 years for the crime of International Drug Trafficking, in correspondence with their participation in the facts.
Cuba reaffirms its willingness to continue strengthening international judicial and police cooperation with other countries, in accordance with the multilateral and bilateral agreements adopted.
Likewise, it reiterates that there will be no impunity against those criminals, inside and outside its borders, who try to profit from the lives of people and encourage drug trafficking and consumption, which is why it will maintain its irreversible policy of zero tolerance and strict compliance with socialist legality.
