1951: "According to several CIA documents generated in 1957... Raikin and two other Bulgarians, on May 6, 1951, deserted their Trudovaks (Bulgarian Labor Corps) military unit 'and made their way to Plovdiv [city in Bulgaria] and into Greece.'..."A November 1957 FBI report, in response to the CIA's request to the Bureau for any information it had on Raikin, reads: 'The reason for [Raikin's] desertion was to join an alleged illegal group working in the mountains south of Plovdiv...unable to hold out any longer they enter Greece on June 19, 1951.'...Raikin (considered) himself an ordained priest in the Bulgarian church. In preparing the information [Raikin] used the nom de plume Prezviter KOSMA. The FBI field station comments that [Raikin] was brought to Athens from Salonika [a major port in Greece] on July 19 1951 to work for CIA LKB.. GSAP/10.'...GASP and GASP/10 were elite, ultra-secret CIA interrogation teams... "A CIA memorandum (11/26/51)...sent...to the CIA FDP chief provides a wider look at Spas Raikin's first encounter with the CIA in Greece, following his interrogation. Chief station Lloyd K. Desmond, a CIA official who played a still-unexplained role in the CIA's hasty post-assassination investigation into Lee Harvey Oswald's Mexico City phone communications, signed the document....'Desmond also noted that Raikin and the other escapees had been interrogated 'to ascertain their future possible operational use.'"
