Widow of Oswaldo Payá rejects Cuban dictatorship’s version of his tragic death

EFE via Fox News:

Cuban Dissident's Widow Rejects Gov't Version of Husband's Death

The widow of prominent Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya said she does not accept the official government statement on the cause of the car crash that killed her husband and is demanding to meet with the two survivors of the accident.

"I'm not going to accept the version the government's giving. In no way do I accept it," Ofelia Acevedo told Efe Friday after Cuban state television made public an Interior Ministry note on the accident.

Paya, the 60-year-old leader of the Christian Liberation Movement, and 31-year-old Harold Cepero, also a member of that dissident organization, died in the accident last Sunday near Bayamo, a city 800 kilometers (500 miles) east of Havana.

The driver of the vehicle, Spain's Angel Carromero, an activist with the youth wing of his country's governing conservative Popular Party, and Sweden's Jens Aron Modig, chairman of the Christian Democrat Youth League, were slightly injured.

The Cuban government said in its note - released Friday - that speeding on a highway where roadwork was being done caused the deadly accident.

"Until I'm able to speak with Angel and Aron, the last two people who saw my husband alive, have access to the expert reports and have the advice of people independent of the Cuban government, I can't have an idea of what really happened that day. I have to meet with those boys."

Both young men are in custody in Cuba. The Spaniard is being held at a police station in Bayamo and the Swede by immigration authorities in Havana.
