01/20/71: Telepouch from COS, WH/Miami to Chief, Western Hemisphere Division: Subject: Operational/Meeting with Yasuinas: "1. On 18 January 1971 (REDACTION) met with Nigel P. Yasuinas. Yasuinas informed (REDACTION) that he handles insurance business for AMBIDDY-1. AMBIDDY-1 recently told Yasuinas that he was visited by Arturo Mugarra (probably Arturo Rolando Mugarra y Pupo (201-301665) who claims to have just arrived in the US after escaping from a government of Cuba (GOC) jail. AMBIDDY-1 added that he knew Mugarra in Cuba and believes him to be Castro agent. However, he could offer no explanation why he believes this to be so. Yasuinas told Pachankis that there was no harassment of AMBIDDY-1 as stated in reference. 2. Mugarra said that he brought out a message from Nicolas Rios (probably Nicolas Rios Miepa) who plans to travel from Cuba to Chile via Spain. Rios wants to see AMBIDDY-1. In Spain. No reasons were given. AMBIDDY-1 did not make any commitment to Magarra about meeting with Rios. AMBIDDY-1 gave Yasuinas no further data on this case. 3. AMBIDDY-1 wishes to make contact again with JKLANCE regarding meeting Rios. He told Yasuinas that he has not had contact with any JKLANCER since he was in Nicaragua. 4. The Cienfuegos matter referred to in reference pertained to a report received by Yasuinas 'sometime last year' from mother of one of his clients. She stated that GOC was 'building caves in the Cienfuegos area and camouflaging them well.' 5. At this juncture we do not believe that AMBIDDY-1/Rios meeting is enough justification for (REDACTION) contact with AMBIDDY-1. However, Yasuinas was given PO Box (REDACTION) and told that we would be glad to meet with him whenever he had anything of importance. (REDACTION)."
