Paya family denounces Spanish government’s efforts to silence witness of dissident’s assassination

Via Spain's El Semanal Digital (my translation):

Family of Oswaldo Paya denounces 'pressure' on Carromero from Spanish government to 'stop talking'

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Isb2-zVgt2M/UBvg1WdapVI/AAAAAAAAJh0/UO6FHt5z5ZI/s1600/Angel+Carromero+Barrios+001.jpgThe family of Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya, who died last July in an auto accident in southeast Cuba, has denounced the Spanish government's efforts to "pressure" the director of New Generations of the PP, Angel Carromero, the only person convicted in the incident, to "stop talking" about what took place.

Carromero, who was sentenced to four years in prison for his part in the accident that took the life of Paya and another opposition member Harold Cepero, broke his silence last week in an interview with The Washington Post in which he declared, among other things, that a second vehicle rammed their car from behind.

The director of the NNGG was transferred to Spain last December thanks to a bilateral agreement to repatriate Spanish inmates in Cuba, which in practice, the government of Mariano Rajoy and Carromero himself validated the trial that took place in Cuba.

Rosa Maria Paya, the daughter of Oswaldo Paya, met with Carromero in mid-February and he confirmed to her the versions of the accident given by witnesses. He also corroborated the information with the other survivor of the accident, Aron Modig, during a meeting the two had last week in Stockholm and which the Swedish politician reiterated that he could not remember anything from the accident."We are confirming the details with both survivors," explained Rosa Maria Paya in an interview with Europa Press. She has matched up information that implies there was a second vehicle -- supposedly belonging to the Cuban regime's State Security -- and that "it is already known" that the car never crashed into a tree.

    Ah, the Spanish. And these are "right-wing" Spaniards. Lord have mercy.

    The Spanish set the original inhabitants of the island of Cuba in chains beginning in 1492...

    These days they continue to keep the current island inhabitants in chains by allying with the Castro tyranny...
