Spain Says It Was Unaware of Carromero’s Activities in Cuba

HAVANA TIMES — The Spanish government said it had “no knowledge” of the activities Angel Carromero in Cuba when he was in an accident that took the lives of dissidents Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero.

This was stated in a parliamentary response by a deputy of the Izquierda Unida Party, Jose Luis Centella, reported Europa Press.

Currently Madrid is negotiating with the Cuban authorities to return of the leader of “Nuevas Generaciones” (the youth organization of Spain’s ruling Partido Popular party), either through deportation — which would leave his sentence expunged — or through an agreement to serve out his sentence in Spain.

Carromero traveled to the island with Swedish Christian democracy activist Aron Modig with the aim of giving money to Paya and helping his daughter set up a youth group linked to her father’s opposition Movimiento Cristiano de Liberacion.
