Cryptonym: AMTABBY-61

Definition:
Alfredo Fernandez Martinez. A CIA document in November, 1964, stated that Alfredo Fernandez Martinez had a C-Number of 737177. A dispatch in April, 1966, stated that AMTABBY-61's 201 number was 201-737177.
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
A memo in September of 1964 stated that the individual with the 201 number of 201-737177 had the same C-Number. Therefore, Alfredo Fernandez Martinez was AMTABBY-61. Moreover, AMTABBY-61 was part of a AMTABBY cache team in December of 1963. In addition, a memo in September of 1964, included AMTABBY-61's 201 number in the group of individuals who had received Operational Approvals for the WIPEGASUS Project in the Congo. Also included were the 201 numbers for AMDESK-1 (Ricardo Anibal Morales Navarrete), AMTYKE-7 (Manuel A. Rivero Coloma - albeit a slight mistake with the 201 number in that particular document), and AMDESK-2. Furthermore, a document in 1968 listed nineteen Cubans that had been involved in the WIPEGASUS Project in the Congo. AMTYKE-7 and AMDESK-1's names were included on this list. This document stated that Alfredo Fernandez Martinez was born on January 17, 1925, at Santa Clara, Cuba. He entered the United States on January 1, 1959.
