Manuel Dobal Mendez. A cable on November 28, 1963, mentioned that Manuel Dobal Mendez's 201 number was 201-337090. In addition, a cable on December 6, 1963, stated that AMTYKE-10's 201 number was 201-337090, matching Dobal's.

Discussion:
An attachment to a March 1963 CIA dispatch from Mexico City stated that AMTYKE-10's sister, Elsie Dobal de Guara, was an acquaintance of LITAMIL-9. Dobal was apparently looking for Teresa Proenza (Proenza) at that time, as a friend of the former's knew Proenza, and Proenza had allegedly remarked to him that her father (and AMTYKE-10's), Dr. Dobal, would have no trouble leaving Cuba. AMTYKE-10's sister was said to be "violently anti-regime" (Castro).
