Cryptonym: HUGALLY-1

Definition:
Unknown identity. A Field Information Report of February of 1968 described HUGALLY-1 of Costa Rica as a high-level member of the National Liberation Party (PLN) who has access to and the confidence of top leaders of his party."
Status:
Unknown
Discussion:
HUGALLY-1 was also said to have a "strong identification with the PLN and the knowledge that his reporting will reach U.S. official circles probably cause him to present his reporting to the best advantage of the PLN. He has submitted reliable information during the past year, but he has been known to withhold pertinent information. He received the information from Daniel Oduber." Oduber was Costa Rica's foreign minister from 1962-1964. In addition, a cable in April, 1966, stated that HUGALLY-1 did not seem to be very close to Luis Arizurrieta. A memorandum in October, 1965, mentioned that Arizurrieta was one of Manuel Artime Buesa's men, and a former AMWORLDer, who was at that time involved in Oduber's personal security group. Moreover, a cable in November of 1974 described HUGALLY-1 as a high Government of Costa Rica official. Furthermore, a cable in April of 1976 stated that "HUGALLY-1 had informed COS that Costa Rican ambassador in Dominican Republic (Callejas who HUGALLY-1 labeled as Figueres man) arranged for entry of Dr. Orlando Bosch into Dominican Republic."

A-1 told me he had followed up with his delegates in Costa Rica and got some details on his former vague report about a Costa Rican official name Zuniga who was anti-American and Communist-influenced. The man's name is Eduardo Zuniga, a high official of the Instituto Nacional de Vivienda Urbana (INVU), in which there is a Communist cell directed by Architects Pablo Jenkins and Cano Rojas. 2. Zuniga has a girl friend named Thelma (lnu), whose family is Communist. Her father is a Communist and a member of the INVU cell mentioned above. He is chauffer for Macho Carazo who is running for Deputy under the PLN and is very close to Daniel Oduber."

10/14-15/65: Memorandum for the record from Withheld: Subject: AMBIDDY/1 Report on Nicaragua, and on General Anastasio Somoza, and on Costa Rica: Pages 2-3: ..."4. Somoza's sources and A/1's representatives in Costa Rica agree that Oduber is going to win handily, but he will have to push for a good majority as the opposition is working hard. Frank Marshall and his cohorts continue to conspire but pose no real threat. a. One of A/1's men, a former AMWORLDer named Luis Arrizurieta Sardinas, is a member of Oduber's personal security group and has gotten rather close to him. He was assigned by A/1 at Oduber's request for a specialist in personal security who was trustworthy as Oduber was afraid of assassination attempts. Arrizurieta reported that the leader of the CR opposition party had met secretly with the French Ambassador there on two occasions. He will investigate further and report if he can get more information."
