Oswaldo Paya and the Varela Project / Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo

Note: Oswaldo Payá was subsequently killed in Cuba during or after a car crash in circumstances that have never been satisfactorily explained by the regime. The driver of the car, a young Spaniard who survived, said that the car was chased and hit from behind by another car and run off the road. Versions differ regarding whether Payá and Harold Cepero, who also died, were alive after the crash.
