104-10103-10075: PROGRESS REPORT ON DEFECTION AND RECRUITMENT ACTIVITY IN LATIN AMERICA

The cover sheet for this report is sent July 1962, from Mexico City chief of station Win Scott to Bill Harvey at Task Force W. This progress report is a significant document, written during or about 1962. LIOOZE-1 is described as "not ideal from the standpoint of control". "LIOOZE-1 returned to Cuba in 1961, and although arrangements were made for him to report by SW, the channel has never been activated at his end, in spite of the fact that AMSEVER-3 was sent into Cuba as a legal traveler to ascertain why not. Apparently LIOOZE-1 prefers not to run any risks inside of Cuba itself."
