The Department of State Foreign Service
Despatch dated July 21, 1959 at Bogota, Colombia
entitled! "Colombian Government Concerned About
Alleged Subversive Activities of SAMUEL MORENO
DIAZ In the United States" enclosed an informal
translation of a memorandum furnished the United
states State Department on JulY 17, 1959 by a
highly placed Colombian official. The memorandum
contained information that SAMUEL MORENO DIAZ
was abuaing American hospitality and was engaged
in intense political activity in the United states
in connection with agents of former venezuelan
president MARCOS PEREZ JIMENEZ and Dominican and
Cuban aliens, with a view to promoting subversive
movements in varioUS American countries.
The Despatch also stated that on JulY 9,
1959 a meeting was held in the NautilUS Hotel of
Miami Beach, Florida, where MORENO DIAZ was registered
under a fictitious name. At the meeting were MORENO
DIAZ, Colonel PAEZ; (ex-member of the govern-
ment of PEREZ JIMENEZ), ABEL CIFUENTES (personal
friend of the Dominican president), and five personal
agents of ex-Cuban senator ROLANDO MASFERRER·
At the meeting there was discussed the
necessity of persuading the Dominican government to
supply the necessary arms through a cash payment for
a subversive movement against Colombia.
It iB noted that Foreign Service Despatch
of the United States State Department dated May 29,
1958 at Bogota, Colombia, reflects that the United
States Embassy in Bogota was officially that
the ruling junta in'Colombia at that time was con-
cerned over the activities of SAMUEL MORENO DIAZ,
son-in-law of ex-president and dictator of Colombia,
GUSTAVO ROJAS PINTI..LA, who was at that time in Colombia,
undergoing a trial in connection with charges made
against him by the new government of colombia.

and the Secretary of State we have been receiving reports from
varioas sources that the United States Government is allegedly
backine anti-Castro elements in the United States for eventual
,attack aeainst Cuba, We advised these officials that it has ·
been our policy with regard to such data. specifically referring
to the alleged support of such activities by the United States,
to furnish such information only to the Central Intelligence
Ap:ency (CIA).
Masferrer was a former Cuban Senator during the Batista
reeime in Cuba and in recent months has been quite active in
acl:ivities against 'Castro • In early October he was behind
an invasionary force which left the United States and attacked
Cuba, By memorandum dated 11-22-60, the Department requested
j
an investigation of his activities to determine if they were in
violation of neutrality statutes within our jurisdiction. This
investigation is presently pending, *
During interviews with Masferrer,and particularly on
11-9-60, Masferrer indicated it was common knowledge that
Frente Revolucionario Democratico (FRD) was e ged in recruiting
