104-10414-10124: MEXICO CITY STATION HISTORY

LIKAYAK-2 was recommended to the Mexico City station by LIMESTONE - as of 1957, LIMESTONE was the principal agent for the phone tap operation known as LIFEAT. At the time of his recruitment, LIKAYAK-2 was running his own private investigation agency. He previously had worked as a chemist and as a former director of the technical laboratory of the Department of the Interior. CIA officer Charles Anderson developed this agent as the leader of a postal intercept operation. LIKAYAK-2 organized a group of 22 agents between 1957 to 1969.
