The Truth in the Deaths of Paya and Cepero

Sunday, December 16, 2012
In its continuous pursuit of the truth, the Christian Liberation Movement (MCL) has just released a series of Facebook posts on the death of Cuban pro-democracy leaders Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero:
No one should forget that the first version of the events that led to the deaths of Oswaldo and Harold came from [imprisoned Spanish youth activist] Angel Carromero, through SMS, to Europe.  That version, which was transmitted minutes after the incident and before Angel was under the control of the Cuban political police, has been ignored by many for the last five months.
'Help, get me out of here, we are surrounded by soldiers' was one of the messages from Angel Carromero from the hospital on July 22nd.
[On the day before], Saturday, July 21st, Aron Modig and Angel Carromero send texts saying Oswaldo Paya was being closely monitored.
Nurses were told Harold Cepero was a terrorist.  They let him die despite having arrived with a fracture.
Angel Carromero said Oswaldo Paya was alive when he was taken out of the car.
Since the beginning, the Spanish government, despite having information about the crime [Paya' and Cepero's murder], adopted a strategy of "self-blame." Now they have to accept that an innocent man, a member of the ruling PP [Partido Popular] serve a prison sentence in Spain for a crime he did not commit. Our problem no longer has a solution   We simply want to know the truth. The problem is now the PPs and its militants, who have remained quiet under an authentic "Law of Silence" imposed by its Foreign Ministry.
