Transferred to a prison in Segovia

HAVANA TIMES — The Spanish politician Angel Carromero arrived in Madrid from Cuba on Saturday to serve the rest of his four-year sentence handed down on the island for his role in the traffic accident that killed Cuban dissidents Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero, reported dpa news.

Carromero, 27, a leader of the ruling Popular Party (PP) of Mariano Rajoy, arrived on a scheduled flight to Barajas Airport and was transferred to a prison in Segovia, north of Madrid. There he will undergo medical tests to determine if he remains imprisoned or serves his sentence under another regime.

The young politician was driving the car on July 22 in which Paya and Cepero were killed. A court in the city of Bayamo, near the place where the accident occurred, sentenced Carromero in October to four years in prison for manslaughter for “reckless behavior.”

A negotiation between Havana and Madrid made it possible for Carromero could be transferred to his country to serve out the sentence.
