Cuban dissident’s death was accidental: crash survivor
July 31, 2012
Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya, who was killed in a car crash on July 22, was not forced off the road, according to two survivors of the accident.
Paya and Harold Cepero, another human-rights activist who was with him, were killed when their car smashed into a vehicle driven by two diplomats. His widow had suggested that Paya’s car was run off the road in a deliberate attempt to kill him. But the driver of the other car said that he simply lost control of his vehicle on a rough road.
