104-10172-10217: AT MEETING ALIAS FLEMING SUBJECT'S ARREST.

10/08/63: Dispatch from Chief, Munich Liaison Base to Chief, EE: Subject: CATIDE LCIMPROVE AELADLE Subject of Reference: "1. At a meeting on 27 September 1963 alias Fleming noted Subject's arrest and stated that he and his CATIDE colleagues had wondered whether AELADLE (Anatoliy Golitsyn) had provided the lead. He went on to state that AELADLE's bona fides was still a matter of conjecture with CATIDE and that confirmation of his role in Subject's arrest would disperse these doubts and lead to a re-evaluation of the AELADLE information in CATIDE's possession. 2. Reference gave permission to indicate knowledge of Subject's case but did not specifically state that we could reveal AELADLE's role. Please advise if we may confirm to alias Fleming that AELADLE was responsible for Subject's arrest. Robert R. Schrieves. Approved - Whitney T. Neale."

In view above request BRUS, in event approached, advise FRAN prior answering NIGALES so that coordinated reply may be formulated."
