Just hours after Cuba’s best-known blogger was arrested, Yoani Sanchez was released. The Cuban government’s goal? Stop Sanchez from causing “a media show to harm the proper conduct” of the trial involving Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya.
A Spanish man held in Cuba went on trial Friday in connection with a car crash in which prominent dissident Oswaldo Paya was killed, and several government opponents, including dissident Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez, were detained in the eastern city where the proceedings were taking place.
Ofelia Acevedo, widow of Cuban dissident Oswaldo Payá, may finally get the answers she’s been seeking.
