The Cuban Catholic Church Calls the Death of Zapata a “Tragedy”

Posted in Pedro Luis, Translator: JT on February 26, 2010 by Pedro Luis

The Cuban Catholic Church described the death of the dissident prisoner Orlando Zapata Tamayo after a hunger strike as a “tragedy” and stated it had asked for permission to visit him, without having been permitted to do so.

“We send to the mother of Mr. Zapata, to his relatives, and his loved ones our condolences and the certainty of our prayers”, wrote the permanent committee of the Conference of Catholic Bishops of Cuba in a press release.
