Cryptonym: AMLIE-1

Definition:
Unknown identity. AMLIE-1 was a Cuban, who was probably involved in intelligence or related work. Neil Prew, a former colleague of William K. Harvey, was notified of the contents of a February 1964 cable mentioning AMLIE-1.
Status:
Unknown
Discussion:
AMLIE-1 was assigned that cryptonym in September of 1962. A cable on November 24, 1963, stated that the AMLIE operation had been revived. AMLIE-1 was in Cuba and had not been able to go to the Soviet Union. In addition, a December 1963 cable said that AMNIP-1 (Miguel Roche Monroy - Cuban DGI defector) was not on good terms with AMLIE-1 but the former knew the latter well. Furthermore, a February 1964 cable stated that, according to LIFEUD-22 (Alberto Cesar Rodriguez Gallego, the CIA cameraman surveilling the Cuban embassy in Mexico City), AMLIE-1 left the Cuban Embassy with Rogelio Rodriguez and an unidentified "big shot", possibly Ambassador. AMLIE-1 was also in contact with AMSAIL-1 (Carlos Fernandez Trujillo, also known as Carlos B. Fernandez).
