Dissident's family to discuss leaving Cuba
Family of late Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya to discuss family's decision to seek refuge in US
MIAMI (AP) — The daughter of a prominent Cuban dissident who died in a car crash will talk about her family's decision to seek refuge in the U.S.
Rosa Maria Paya and her mother are expected to speak with reporters in Miami Tuesday.
Paya traveled throughout Europe and the U.S. in April to push for an international investigation into her father's death.
Oswaldo Paya was killed in a car crash in 2012. His daughter says witness accounts, text messages and other evidence raise questions about the Cuban government's official account.
Rosa Maria Paya returned to Cuba, even though she said her family had been threatened.
A spokesman for the Christian Liberation Movement Oswaldo Paya started said the family was settling in Miami as "political refugees" after their arrival in early June.
