Discussion:
Moreover, a cable from San Juan in August, 1963, stated that it was assumed AMBANG-1's (Manuel Ray Rivero) future relationship with the CIA would be discussed prior to his departure with Lamiaux. In addition, a dispatch in September of 1963 from Chief of Station (COS), San Juan, was signed by Melvin K. Lamiaux. Therefore, it is possible that Lamiaux was COS, San Juan, Costa Rica, in September, 1963. A dispatch in January of 1964 confirmed that Melvin K. Lamiaux was COS, San Juan.
