Vargas Llosa said in a letter released Tuesday:
I think the admirable work that Oswaldo Payá has carried out peacefully for many years for human rights and freedom in Cuba, for which he has suffered so many abuses and persecution, has earned the respect and admiration of the entire democratic world.Vargas Llosa was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2010. The writer expressed his solidarity with the "courageous commitment " of Payá's Varela Project.
