July, 1960, but they have since separated and are contem-
plating divorce.
MARTINEZ stated that his immigration into the
United States was sponsored by MICHAEL McLANEY, who had
operated the casino in the Nacional Hotel in Havana be-
fore the Government of FIDEL CASTRO closed down such
operations. MARTINEZ said that when he lost his job in
the Cuban Customs Service in the first part of 1959,
(
when the CASTRO Government removed the pre-CASTRO personnel,
he, worked for McLANEY at the casino in the gen-
eral capacity of Spanish-speaking clients. He
said that as of July, 1960, he reached the decision that
he could no longer accept the restrictions of freedom
being imposed_by the CASTRO regime, and decided to move to
the United States. He said that very shortly after arrival,
he began emp.loyment at the Fontainebleau Hotel at Miami
Beach as a "runner," handling cars, and with the exception
of about three or four weeks during 1960 when he worked at
a motel on the 79th Street Causeway, Miami Beach, he has
been steadily employed at the Fontainebleau.

JORGE ANTONIO MARTINEZ SOTO voluntarily appeared
at the Miami Office of the ,FBI in to a telephone
placed to him at the Fontainebleau Hotel on March 22,
1964. HARTINEZ said he is knm.'ll as GEORGE and
he felt he had sufficient comprehension of English to
permit conduct of the interview in the English language.
MARTINEZ said he has on occasions in the past taken
visitors in his personal car to· tourist attractions in the
Miami area, including the Par.rot Jungle. lle recalled th!'!
occasion on or about November 1, 1963, when he took tourists
to the Parrot Jungle, and there engaged in conversa-
tion \iith the employees in the gift shop and displayed his
ability to write with both hands simultaneously. Durit>..g in-
terview, he exhibited this ability by writing his name,
MARTINEZ, with both hands simultaneously.
; .. . .
Mr. MARTINEZ stated that he had no personal ac-
quaintanceship with, or knowledge of, LEE HARVEY OSWALD.
He said that if the Parrot Jungle employee thought he had
expressed an association or acquaintanceship with OSWALD,
this misunderstanding on the part of the employee must
have res'ulted from his poor pronunciation of English, and
lack of arammatical correctness. Restated that, in fact,
he knew no one with the first name LEE, and was at a loss
to understand how the employee might ha,re obtained this
misunderstanding. He said, likewise, he had no friend
located either in Texas or Hexico, and that ·:.:he incident of
his having allegedly spoke!!: in this sel'.lse was completely
erroneous.
stated that he does regard himself as
excitable, and particularly so with regard to the control
of Cuba by FIDEL CASTRO, and that he may have made some
remarks related to CASTRO which were misinterpreted by the

F. KENNEDY. lli said he vaguely recalled having spoken
about CASTRO and the.Cuban situation. He said, by way
of explaining remarks. attributed to him by the Parrot
Jungle employee, that he may have said that he wished he
\.<ere in or that he were the President of the
United States so that he could exercise the power to blow
up FIDEL CASTRO. said he may also have expressed
some displeasure at what he regards as the failure of the
United States to rid Cuba of CASTRO, but it was not a
criticism of the United States Government,which he considers
to be the best in the world. MARTINEZ denied that he would
ha-;re made any such statement as "shooti):lg between the eyes
of President KENNEDY," .and explained that if he made any
such references, it wcml,(fmost certainly have been with respec1=
to CASTRO. .
MARTINEZ stated that he is acquainted with no one
whan he knm;rs to be a U •. S. citizen and Marxist, or such an
individual who had served in the U. S. Armed Forces. He
stated that he, himself, speaks Spanish and broken English,
and no other language, and he does not have any friend
or acquaintance who can spealc the Russian language. MAR-
TINEZ said that, likewise, he could think of no acquaint-
ance whom he knew to be a marksman or sharpshooter, and he
added that if he had made some remark.of this nature to the
'
I'arrot J'ungle employee, it was unquestionably in reference
to the means by which he would like to see FIDEL CASTRO
eliminated,
said he did not recall what may have
prompted him to talk along these general lines during
his visit to the Parrot Jungle, but possibly some development

in the Cuban situation had recently occurred which could
have upset him. He said that it was incredible that any-
one should think that he would have any relationship
with a pro-CASTRO person, because, in fact, he has only
hate for CASTRO sympathizers. He related that he was
employed in the Minis try of Finance. in Cuba. as of 194 9,
and continued in that department until the beginning of
1959, at which time he was the Customs Inspector in Charge
of Havana Harbor and the Colombia. Air Base near Havana.
He said he was economically comfortable, in that he was
earning $900.00 a month as of 1959, and resided rent free
in a $40,000.00 home.in Havana which belonged to his aunt,
and which he would eventually inherit.
l1ARTINEZ continued that his former father-in-
law, CARLOS PUJOL, was a government administrator during
the regime of-Cuban President CARLOS PRIO, and it was
through PUJOL that MARTINEZ o_riginally obtained employment
in 1949 in the Ministry of Finance.
He said that his own· father, ANTONIO MARTINEZ
PEREZ ABRE:U, had been a successful and well-to-do attorney
in Cuba prior to the advent of FIDEL CASTRO to power, but
had since lost his properties through confiscation by the
CASTRO regime. He said he did not knaw the whereabouts of
his father, although the latter might still be in Cuba. ~ e
said that his mother, CARMEN SOTO URQUIZA, h<>d di•10rced his
father years ago, and married EMILIO GARCIA PEREZ, who had
lost a large amount of income property in Cuba to the Cuban
Government. He said his mother and step-father continue to
live in Cu_ba. .
