Another Cuban opposition leader dies in mysterious auto accident

Members and leaders of the opposition in Cuba continue to die in mysterious auto accidents. The latest victim is Antonio Rodriguez, a leader of Cuba's opposition Christian Liberation Movement (MCL) in Cienfuegos. The founder of MCL, Oswaldo Payá, was also killed in a mysterious car crash last year along with another dissident, Harold Cepero.

Reports coming out of Cuba from independent sources in the opposition say two Jesuit priests were in the car with Rodriguez when the accident took place, but both survived the accident. The priests were treated for injuries at a local hospital and reportedly are now in stable condition. The reports from the island also call into question the coincidence that another leader of the MCL is killed in a mysterious fashion and on the same day that Payá's daughter, Rosa Maria Payá, spoke at a human rights conference in Geneva denouncing the repression of the Castro dictatorship and calling for free elections in Cuba.

Martí Noticias has the report (in Spanish) HERE.
