Paya Family Changes Mind on Asylum

HAVANA TIMES — Seven members of the family of the late opposition activist Oswaldo Paya will establish themselves in South Florida but will not seek political asylum, reported the Nuevo Herald, contradicting an earlier statement.

Antonio Díaz, a member of the Christian Liberation Movement founded by Paya,  had said recently that the family would solicit asylum.  However, Paya’s brother Carlos said the newly arrived relatives would not be requesting the provision open to Cubans under the Cuban Adjustment Act.

The decision not to seek asylum opens the door to the Paya family members to return to Cuba if necessary to continue the work of the deceased politician.
