Ministry of the Interior (MININT) Informative Note

This past April 26, Interior Ministry forces detained the citizens of Cuban origin, resident in Miami, United States, José Ortega Amador, Obdulio Rodríguez González, Raibel Pacheco Santos and Félix Monzón Álvarez,  as they were planning to carry out terrorist attacks within national territory.

Those arrested acknowledged that they intended to attack military installations with the objective of promoting violent actions. Toward this end, three of the individuals had made several trips to the island, since mid-2013, to study and practice the execution of their plans.

They additionally stated that these plans had been organized under the direction of the terrorists Santiago Álvarez Fernández Magriñá, Osvaldo Mitat and Manuel Alzugaray, who reside in Miami and maintain close ties with well-known terrorist Luis Posada Carriles.

Pertinent contact with appropriate United States authorities was made, in order to investigate these events and prevent, in a timely fashion, the actions of such individuals and terrorist organizations based in that country, which endanger the lives and security of persons in both nations.
