Will Carromero Become Spain’s Alan Gross?The Castro regime has released its “official” version of the accident that caused the death of Cuban pro-democracy leader Oswaldo Paya.
As expected, it blames a Spanish youth leader who was accompanying Paya, Angel Carromero, for the accident.
Paya’s family rejects the regime’s version of the events, as they have received independent reports that the car was rammed beforehand.
A couple of interesting things to note regarding the “official” report.
First, it comes from the Ministry of the Interior — the Castro regime’s entity tasked with intelligence and repression.
Second, the report quotes Carromero (and the Swedish survivor, Aron Modig), yet both remain detained with no independent verification of their versions.
And now, the Castro regime is weighing criminal charges against Carromero, in order to prevent Carromero from freely and publicly stating his version.
In other words, similar to American development worker, Alan Gross, who has been imprisoned since December 2009, Carromero might tragically become Castro’s Spanish hostage.
