Status:
Unknown
Discussion:
The memo stated that AMCASH and a withheld individual had been exposed to an apartment at (REDACTION) Blvd., Alexandria, Virginia. AMCASH was in New York at the time that the memo was written. Also mentioned were Dolf Luim with AMDIXIE-1 (was AMDIXIE-1 a Cuban connected to the South of the U.S.?), AMTOUT (probably Mario Lazo y Guiral), Lou De Santi with AMNIP-1 (Miguel Roche Monroy) and Dr. Winston. In addition, a memo for the record from withheld, WH/C/FI, in April, 1965, stated that "because of the interest in the 'coincidental' trip to Havana of both UNSNAFU/19 (Cuban Ambassador to Paris, Antonio Maria Carrillo Carreras) and AMCASH/3 shortly after having received the 'planted' information of the MHSPAWN (cable indicator for covert action propaganda) operation, we queried AMWHIP/1 (Carlos Tepedino Gonzalez) regarding U/19's trip." Were AMCASH and AMCASH-3 persons linked to banking/business/accountancy, etc?
