|Sinister collaboration between terrorists, mercenaries and U.S. authorities
Exposed on Roundtable, damning evidence presented

The connections between the Fundación Rescate Jurídico (Judicial Rescue Foundation) registered as a corporation in the state of Florida, a well-known counterrevolutionary ringleader and the chief of mission and other officials at the U.S. Interests Section in Havana confirm the fundamental ties between terrorist elements sheltered in Miami, pro-annexation mercenaries living in Cuba and U.S. government authorities.
That intimate relationship, dedicated to fulfilling the imperial obsession of destroying the Cuban nation, was laid bare to public opinion with the presentation of overwhelming evidence by panelists who participated Monday in the radio and TV Roundtable program, moderated by journalist Randy Alonso Falcón.
The guiding thread of the infamous plot came to light during an appearance before the foreign press by Marta Beatriz Roque Cabello, known for her subversive activities in the service of U.S. authorities, during which she thanked a variety of U.S. organizations for their support.
Among those organizations, a body rarely mentioned before in such activities: the Fundación Rescate Jurídico, stirred up attention. A journalistic investigation reported on for the Roundtable by Lázaro Barredo Medina, editor of Granma, revealed that Rescate Jurídico Inc. was registered with the state of Florida as a "non-profit organization", headed by Santiago Alvarez Fernández Magriñat.
One fact that speaks volumes is that the date of its registration is listed as June 24, 2005 - one month after the arrest of Luis Posada Carriles in U.S. territory and six weeks after Fidel denounced Alvarez Fernández Magriñat for smuggling into the United States the terrorist responsible for the Cubana airliner sabotage, aboard the Santrina, a boat belonging to another of his foundations, the so-called Caribe.
Another clarification: the Rescate Jurídico Inc. state registration document indicates that a substantial portion of its funding comes from governmental sources.
Barredo recalled that using agencies, foundations, corporations and businesses as cover for channeling funds intended for subversive activities in Cuba has been a regular practice among counterrevolutionaries encouraged by successive U.S. administrations.
Examples of this process can be seen in the role played by the USAID (U.S. Agency for International Development) and NED (National Endowment for Democracy), which between 1993 and 1999, funded more than 300 and 60 anti-Cuban groups and projects, respectively.
LEGAL EVIDENCE OF THE SORDID RELATIONSHIP
In a special interview granted to the Roundtable program, Adalberto Rabeiro, head of the Ministry of the Interior’s Department of Criminal Investigations and Operations, revealed details of the investigation, which unequivocally established the connection between Rescate Jurídico and the Cuban citizen Marta Beatriz Roque Cabello, plus the mediation of U.S. diplomats accredited in Havana, headed by Michael Parmly, chief of mission at the U.S. Interests Section (USIS), who has become a veritable channel for transporting those illegal funds to Cuba.
After it became known through various means, including public statements made by Roque Cabello, that the Alvarez Fernández Magriñat Foundation had established a relationship with the faithful USIS servant, and given the seriousness of the issue, the Ministry of the Interior decided to initiate an investigation to fully verify the nature of this connection.
The plan of action reflected the need to legally document the details of an extremely dangerous activity which threatens the national security, internal order and stability of Cuban society, given the involvement of an individual such as Alvarez Fernández Magriñat, well-known terrorist, tried and convicted by U.S. authorities themselves.
The terrorist’s file, circulated with a red alert on INTERPOL, documents his many criminal acts, including his links to the group that plotted an attempt on Fidel’s life at the University of Panama in 2000, as well as the training, financing and transportation of a group of terrorists to the northern coast of Villa Clara with the mission of bombing Cuban tourist facilities that, if it had come off, would have resulted in extensive loss of human life.
The investigation has proven beyond any shadow of doubt the links between Alvarez Fernández Magriñat and Marta Beatriz Roque, including the regular and frequent provision of funds, with the personal participation of USIS diplomatic personnel, including Parmly, as facilitators of these transactions.

RE: SOS, URGENTE, Agua por señas
Yo te puedo poner en contacto con un sobrino político que tengo en Miami que a su vez me enviará por una vía segura este dinero. Solo quiero que le pidas que lo conviertan en euros, porque aquí a los dólares le quitan en el cambio el 20% y ciertamente es un robo del gobierno.
Te puedes comunicar con él por el correo email@example.com
El se llama Juan Carlos Fuentes y puede recibir lo que tu le mandes en mi nombre, le voy a pasar copia de este correo para contactarlos a los dos.
Un beso grande. Quiero conversar con ustedes respecto al documento y a lo que pensamos hacer. Saludos afectuosos.
Expert evidence has been compiled such as e-mail messages between the counterrevolutionary ringleader and the terrorist obtained through a computer forensics expert investigation; graphic evidence of Roque Cabello’s regular visits to the Hotel Comodoro Cybercafé from where she established contact with her financier, plus her fingerprints, all of which provide irrefutable evidence as to her identity as the perpetrator of those actions; the content of those communications; and the involvement of the U.S. Interests Section.
The program also defined the legal basis for a continuing investigation, authorized not only by current applicable Cuban legislation but also by international covenants related to combating terrorism, of which Cuba is a signatory.
CIA, POSADA, ALVAREZ: A PERVERSE COMBINATION
The Cuban people shook with indignation some time ago when they heard the voice of Alvarez Fernández Magriñat personally instructing one of his infiltrated agents in April 2001 to dynamite the Tropicana nightclub. "Two little cans (of explosives) and the thing is gone," he said at the time, with the criminal unfeelingness of a terrorist. That recording was played again on the "Roundtable" program as part of the presentation by Manuel Hevia, director of the State Security Historic Research Center, who outlined the background of Posada Carriles’ "benefactor."
Inspired by the examples of his grandfather — the notorious assassin who murdered Julio Antonio Mella in 1929 —and his father — a henchman of the Batista dictatorship and founder of the Comandos L terrorist group, created by the CIA — Alvarez Fernández Magriñat was recruited by the CIA in the early 1960s. He participated in various acts of anti-Cuba subversion and bragged about being a mastermind of one of the most repugnant of those actions: the October 12, 1971 machine-gunning of the coastal village of Boca de Samá, in northeast Cuba, which injured two teenage girls, one of whom was left with a mutilated leg. It was during that period that Fernández Magriñat’s became associated with Posada Carriles, a relationship that grew with time and service.
In the mid-1990s, he reappeared on the Florida scene. He was unable to participate in the planned Panama assassination attempt, although he was immersed in preparations for it; nevertheless, he emerged as one of the godfathers of the terrorist group after their arrest. A large volume of recorded testimony shows him to be an assiduous visitor of his buddies in prison, and he barely concealed his role in pressuring certain Panamanian authorities with the goal of facilitating his friends’ escape, finally winning a presidential pardon from Mireya Moscoso, an operation involving an investment of no less than $4 million.
As people know, Alvarez Fernández Magriñat took Posada to the United States and did his best to ensure Posada’s release from administrative and legal charges that were already flimsy.
The FBI carried out an operation against Fernández Magriñat in 2006, and prosecutors brought charges of six counts of illegal possession of a sizeable cache of weapons, explosives and military equipment. At the time of his arrest, he cynically told a Miami TV station, "I trust in this country’s justice." He was right: through the ins, outs and roundabouts of a legal system in Florida that serves the interests of the highest circles of power in the nation and the anti-Cuban mafia, the terrorist slipped out from under the sentence he would have received if the Patriot Act had been applied, and received just a 16 month prison term. And on another matter, his trial on charges of obstruction of justice in the case against Posada Carriles, Fernández Magriñat got away with 10 months’ jail time, two years’ parole and an insignificant $2,000 fine.
As this was happening, prisoner Alvarez Fernández Magriñat was inventing (or someone invented it for him) Rescate Jurídico and his perverse association with Roque Cabello and the U.S. Interests Section.
Reinaldo Taladrid noted that a good number of the weapons, including AK machine guns, seized from Fernández Magriñat, who intended to use them to assassinate the Cuban president, were purchased at a fair in Miami, at nothing less than a Police Department stand.
Taladrid added that the Cuban government was completely justified in beginning an investigation, under three legal provisions: the Cuban Criminal Proceedings Law, Decree Law 199 on computer security, and existing anti-terrorism conventions to which Cuba is a signatory.
He explained some of the contents of these laws, which clearly state that it is a crime for someone to facilitate the delivery or sale of weapons knowing they are to be used for criminal action, for harming people or intimidating a population…
And it is a given that every state has the right to take whatever measures necessary to ensure that such terrorist actions cannot be justified or executed under any circumstance.
Very much contrary to Cuba’s way of proceeding, the U.S. authorities act without considering legal regulations when they say that they are fighting terrorism.
MONEY AND MORE MONEY
Taladrid referred to emails between Marta Beatriz Roque Cabello and Mayra Cardín, who lives in Florida and is a member of the so-called Junta Cubana Patriotica, very closely associated with the notorious assassin Luis Posada Carriles.

The Friend has already given instructions for the help, apart from that of always, he wanted to know how much money you really need for the meeting… If it’s not inconvenient I also need you to put it in the group of emails to SALVAREZCORP@aol.com so that they receive news of the Assembly. Big kisses, Carmen.

Typical of Miami, all the ruckus but no orchestra. Lots to say but nothing about money. I think that they were bragging when they said they were going to send me that money every month. You, nothing, when you go to see them like they said if you need anything, tell them that when I got the news it was that it was going to be monthly and that I’d to get in contact with them as well tell them thanks a million. Well, tu know about that and more.

For: "Machado Carmen" Carmen.Machado@HCAhealthcare.com
Hola Martha Beatriz, I met with Juanca on Saturday to give you the monthly. I sent you what we agreed- $1500 for you, $300 for Elsa, and $300 for Arcos’ widow. I also want if at some point you got what we sent via M.. Well, bye for now because I know you don’t have much time. Big kiss.
In all of their messages, the common denominator is requests for money by the empire’s employee in Cuba, and her superiors’ promises to send her a fixed salary of $1,500 per month, more than enough material aid for achieving their goal of subversion in Cuba.
Marta Beatriz sent messages of thanks and requests for more money to her nephew by marriage, Juan Carlos Fuentes Amaya (the husband of María de los Ángeles Falcón Cabello, her niece), and to Carmen Machado, the financial coordinator of a medical institution located in Miami, which apparently concerns itself less with health issues and more with guaranteeing funds for terrorist operations.
It has been proven that this individual not only has this sinister task, but is a close collaborator and the lover of Santiago Alvarez Fernández Magriñat.
During the "Roundtable" program, it was revealed that one of the emails sent by Juan Carlos Fuentes, apparently following orders, asked Marta Beatriz for her confirmation of nominating the so-called "Ladies in White" for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Beginning with a message dated February 10, 2007, the emails start to use coded language when referring to Santiago, whom they call "the friend"; they also use codes to refer to sums of money.
Around this time, another woman joins the electronic conspiracy, María Teresa Cue, Alvarez Fernández Magriñat’s personal secretary.
The "Roundtable" panelists revealed the impunity granted to ongoing aggression against Cuba from within the United States, asking: how could an individual who is in prison for weapons’ possession and overwhelming evidence of participating in criminal actions (although not recognized as such by U.S. authorities) freely maneuver and provide for the delivery of funds to his paid employees in Cuba?
In analyzing the tangle of emails, Lázaro Barredo emphasized the undeniable participation of diplomats from the U.S. Interests Section in Havana, the ties between Marta Beatriz and the terrorists, and money as a consistent motive behind each action.
One of the messages reveals, in code, the priceless help from Michael Parmly, head of the USIS, who is in the United States right now with the goal of collecting a sum of money for his employees here.
This man’s generous contribution to the counterrevolution includes opening the doors of his office to these unpatriotic individuals for writing their heartfelt texts.
Barredo added that the U.S. FBI has not chosen to monitor the correspondence or personal associations of Alvarez Fernández Magriñat in prison, even though it is evident that his incarceration is related to violence.
After playing a video recorded on January 12 showing Marta Beatriz Roque Cabello in the Hotel Comodoro’s Internet café sending her email, Barredo asserted that nobody could say that the person in the video was not her, given that the meticulous investigation included taking fingerprints from the drinking glass and computer used by the counterrevolutionary woman.
The "Roundtable program" concluded with an announcement that the revelations are to continue tonight on the scandalous connection between the terrorists, mercenaries and U.S. government.
