14ymedio, Havana, 15 November 2016 – The Patriotic Union of Cuba
(UNPACU) Arcelio Molina Rafael Leyva, known as ‘Chely’, 53, died early
on Tuesday after falling from the roof of his home in Havana’s Playa
district. This morning an intense police operation surrounded the
opponent’s house to investigate the causes of his death, according to
UNPACU’s leader, Jose Daniel Ferrer, speaking to 14ymedio.
“Chely deserves a special commemoration page,” the dissident leader told
this newspaper, “it is to him that we owe a lot of the audiovisual we
have developed.” The activist joined UNPACU in mid-November 2011 and
worked in the editing and publication of the videos on the
organization’s Youtube channel.
Molina Leyva’s home was the UNPACU’s headquarters for western Cuba, and
he was responsible for attention to political prisoners.
By decision of the family, his body will be cremated.
