From ABC in Spain: (read here, in Spanish)
As Gomer Pyle used to say: surprise, surprise, surprise !!!!
Jens Aron Modig, the young Swedish politician who was traveling with Oswaldo Payá and survived Sunday’s “accident” with minor injuries, is being detained in Havana, at an undisclosed location. The Swedish embassy is keeping its lips sealed, and is simply saying that they hope he can return home as soon as possible. Those who are familiar with the modus operandi of Castrolandia are not surprised, but the European media are expressing shock and dismay over this flagrant violation of the young man’s human rights.
Modig is no mere tourist. As president of Sweden’s Christian Democratic Youth League (KDU), he is a top-notch hostage. And so is his Spanish traveling companion, Angel Carromerro, Vice-Secretary of the Popular Party’s youth league, New Generations. Both of these young men are more than golden bargaining chips. They were not just eyewitnesses, but participants in “the accident.” While the rulers of Castrolandia may have been willing to snuff out their lives along with those of two Cuban dissidents, they are now certainly eager to make the most of this Kafkaesque situation.
Only one thing is certain at this point: the rulers of Castrolandia are already claiming their pound of flesh, secure in the knowledge that no one in the world will dare to seriously challenge them, and certain that they have much to gain.
Oh, wait…. I forgot….one more thing is certain: The news media of the “free world” will do absolutely nothing to get to the bottom of this tragic story.
