104-10192-10034: COVER SHEET AND FIELD INFORMATION REPORT ON ACTIVITIES OF THE INSURRECTIONAL MOVEMENT FOR REVOLUTIONARY RECOVERY (MIRR)

07/15/65: Report Cover Sheet from JMWAVE: Reporting Officer: Henry J. Sloman, Reports Officer: John C. Tarbell, Approving Officer: Philip G. Elmard: "SOURCE: AMOT-2 (Jose Joaquin Sanjenis Perdomo), from AMOT-84, from AMBANG-8 (DD-1491) dated 6 July 1965." Page 2: Field Information Report: "1. On instructions from Orlando Bosch Avila, leader of the Insurrectional Movement for Revolutionary Recovery (Movimiento Insurreccional de Recuperacion Revolucionaria, MIRR), Marcelino Garcia Jimenez (true name Evilio Duque), chief of the directorate of the organization, was preparing a letter in early July to be addressed to President Lyndon B. Johnson. It would contain accusations against the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the United States Customs Service. The leaders of the MIRR hope to create a scandal when the contents of the letter become known. 2. Bosch has accused Frank Rafferty and William J. Johnson, United States citizens, of having informed the authorities of an operation which resulted in the arrests of members of the MIRR, and the seizure of material in Orlando, Florida. (1) 3. According to Garcia, a member (not identified) of the MIRR had been sent to Canada to sabotage ships which are engaged in trade with Cuba, and Orlando Ramirez Sanchez, a member of the action group of the MIRR, was in Venezuela on a mission. 4. Gervelio Gutierrez Conception, aka 'Mimo', a member of the military section of the MIRR, said that the organization had no supply of explosives. However, during conversations between Gutierrez and Garcia, it was indicated that there was possibly a small supply of explosives at Key West. 5. According to Garcia, the financial situation of the MIRR was serious; they had only $500 (U.S.). In discussions by MIRR officials concerning the raising of money, the possibility of increasing propaganda was being considered, as well as a possible trip to New York by Garcia in an effort to solicit financial aid there."

It is requested that the Source description for AMGABE-1 be changed to read as follows: 'A prosperous Cuban émigré who is an officer of an émigré organization of conservative political orientation. His reporting on émigré activities has often been accurate in the past but because of his present mental instability, the validity of his reporting cannot be determined.'
