European Parliament Calls for Paya Death Investigation

Saturday, December 14, 2013
This week, the European Parliament called for an "independent and international investigation" into the death of Cuban pro-democracy leader, Oswaldo Paya.

Paya died in a mysterious car accident last year, pursuant to being followed and harassed by vehicles of Castro's secret police.

In a motion, the European Parliament asks the European Union's High Commissioner for Foreign Affairs, Catherine Ashton, to pursue such an investigation with the United Nations.

The motion passed by a vote of 588-34.
