The President of the Community of Madrid, Esperanza Aguirre, visited today with Angel Carromero, the Spanish youth activist imprisoned for driving the car that crash and killed Cuban pro-democracy leaders Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero.
Carromero was convicted in a sham trial by the Castro regime and repatriated to Spain this week, where he will serve the remainder of his Cuban sentence.
After the visit, Aguirre denounced the torture-like conditions Carromero was subjected to by the Castro regime and called for an independent international investigation into the deaths of Paya and Cepero.
Paya's family -- and Carromero himself before being taken into custody -- holds that the car was rammed by another vehicle, presumably of secret police officials that had been following them for hours.
