104-10183-10355: CIA FILE ON AMMUG-1

3/3/70 dispatch from Chief, WH/Miami to Chief, WHD: "On 26 February when Henry S. Pachankis met with AMMUG-1 (201-749651) on his citizenship problem...AMMUG-1 was asked if he had anything new to report. He brought up a most interesting case, one which could prove to be a valuable lead. AMMUG-1 has known the Rodriguez family since his childhood in Regla (a small town across the bay from Havana). The father had been a bolita banker since the Batista era. AMMUG-1 was very friendly with Rodriguez's two sons. Roberto Rodriguez Llompart (note: 201-865547, Government, assigned to a foreign embassy)...and Hector Rodriguez Llompart (note: 201-276598, Cuban ambassador to East Germany)...AMMUG-1, who was in the police force in the initial stages of the revolution, states that he deleted an incriminating page from his father's dossier (showing he paid off the police to save his bolita operation) and thus saved him from prosecution. AMMUG-1 continued to be close with the family, especially Roberto, 'whom I saw everyday and ran around with.'...Since Roberto appears to be an excellent recruitment target, we will have him watchlisted with a view toward having AMMUG-1 make an approach to him at the first opportunity."

104-10225-10019: AMMUG-1 OA GRANTED EFFECTIVE 5 JAN FOR OPS USE OUTSIDE U S

01/06/71: Cable from WH/Miami to Director: REF: DIRECTOR 097508: "1. AMMUG-1 OA granted effective 5 Jan for ops use outside U.S. as set forth in PRQ dated 1965. 2. Subject ref assigned AMETROPIA-1. 3. File: 201-865547, 201-749651."

104-10183-10366: NONRELATED AMMUG-1.

10/23/74 memo from Director to REDACTED: "Appreciate REDACTED'S offer attempt approach SLASH-1. However, wish stand-down for moment on op, since we see no chance of success using only name of SLANK-1. SLANK-1 disappeared several months ago. Henry S. Pachankis, who in contact with SLANK-1, presently NY where involved other operational priorities, and unable return Miami try track down SLANK-1. We hope do so when Pachankis returns Miami, and will then think in terms of SLASH-1's next trip out. File: 201-365547 (typo - should be 201-865547) LA comment: "Ref offered CO (case officer) REDACTED to approach SLASH-1 using name SLANK-1 (childhood friend of SLASH-1) using bona fides."
