pseudonym
Status:
Unknown
Discussion:
A cable on June 6, 1967, stated that Jersawit would brief COS (Chief of Station) in detail on the AMSTALK-1 operation and background, as well as the possibly related AMSTRUT-3 (unknown identity) operation. AMSTRUT-1 was Virginia Vasco Leitao da Cunha, wife of the Brazilian Ambassador to Cuba. AMSTRUT-2 was Juana de la Caridad Castro Ruz, sister of Fidel and Raul. In addition, a damage report for AMSTALK-1 in March of 1968 mentioned that Stanley B. Jersawit was exposed to the former by his true name during a Counter Intelligence (CI) trip to Spain in June 1967.
