Cuba: Suspects confess to murders of Spanish priests

July 17, 2009

Cuba’s leading prelate has announced that suspects have confessed to the murders of Spanish missionary priests this year. Cardinal Jaime Lucas Ortega y Alamino of San Cristobal de la Habana said in a communiqué that “any attempt to link one case with another or to give it a religious or political meaning [is] completely foreign to the reality of the criminal deed itself.”

Father Isidro Hoyos, a Spanish missionary and friend of the two murdered priests, disagreed. “It seems that the procedure was the same, the torture, the cruelty.”
