5/8/51 letter from Terence U. Nasmith to Gerald I. Manfield re Lyle O. Kelly: "The most serious matter, one which could not be ignored, involved Kelly's relations with the HBFairies. Kelly had advised us that a Fairy Vice Consul from Salonica had contacted him with regard to working together...We learned what was wanted and advised Kelly he was not repeat not to see the Fairy agent, or any other Fairies, after a certain Thursday." See page 117: Kelly's real name was Dimitri Dimitrov, a Bulgarian national. In 1950, it was feared that he might defect to the French. He wound up living in the USA and as "General Donald Donaldson" became an ally of Willem Oltmans, the would-be biographer of George de Mohrenschildt. See 104-10423-10257. (at page 95, 4/20/51): "On 18 April we had (Dico Dimitrov) picked up by BGKANTAR and put under protective arrest...most curious was that he was about to sell knowledge of our operations to the local FAIRYS for an initial sum of local equivalent of $1600, a price we considered insulting low."

The memorandum summarizes the Kelly/Dimitrov case and reaffirms "According to Pritchett, our people discovered that French Intelligence Service was attempting to bribe Kelley and make him a double agent and Kelly was looking with favor upon the French offers. To prevent Kelly/Dimitrov from accepting the French offers he was arrested and held in Greek jail for six months until CIA "people...flew him to Panama where, through arrangement, he was placed in a U.S. Military Hospital as a psychopathic patient." Agency officials further state Dimitrov was causing problems at the hospital and "...is not a psychopathic personality."

OBOPUS BGFIEND VOL. 15 (BGFIEND OPERATIONS)_0057

This document refers to Agency operations that would affect the relationship between nations assigned the cryptonyms QKCIGAR and HBFAIRY and states "...trying to prevent strengthening of ties between QKCIGAR and HBFAIRY, probably because such a move would tend to weaken ZRCROWN's own position with QKCIGAR and in the world picture generally." This would infer that HBFAIRY is a nation related to these operational concerns. https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/OBOPUS%20BGFIEND%20%20%20VOL.%2015%20%20%28BGFIEND%20OPERATIONS%29_0057.pdf

OBOPUS BGFIEND VOL. 4_0054

This document was created a CIA official in Germany and further supports that HBFAIRY is a nation and remarks that related individuals "... crossed the HBFAIRY-JBHOMER border without incident." https://www.cia.gov/library/readingroom/docs/OBOPUS%20BGFIEND%20%20%20VOL.%204_0054.pdf
