And the Washington Post’s Jackson Diehl reports in his column today that he was visited by Rene Iglesias, a former associate of Paya. Iglesias, making rounds in Washington, roughly repeated the story he told Radio Marti last month about text messages that went from Cuba to Sweden the day of the accident, saying that the car Carromero was driving had been forced off the road. He also gave an account that is similar, but not in all details, to that of Paya’s daughter regarding information the family says it gathered from the hospital in Bayamo the day of the accident.
Iglesias has not seen the texts; he heard about them from a Spaniard who heard about them from a Swede. On Radio Marti, Iglesias complained about the “hiding of the truth” by those who won’t divulge the texts.
