This Date in History: Senior Spy Appointed Ambassador to Venezuela 2

August 12, 1994:  America Department (DA) officer German Sanchez Otero, who had been serving undercover as a sociologist at the University of Havana, was appointed ambassador to Venezuela.  His arrival followed the March 1994 release of Hugo Chavez, who had been imprisoned for his role in a 1992 coup attempt.  Sanchez remained Havana’s Ambassador until August 2009.

Editor’s Note:  The America Department (DA) was the name used by the intelligence wing of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party from 1974 to the late 1980s or early 1990s. The DA was heavily involved in supporting revolutionaries and terrorists, but has since become more focused on political intelligence operations. This service is now called the America Area of the International Department of the Cuban Communist Party (PCC/ID/AA).



  1. The Cuban communist take over of Venezuela was planned during the first second half of 1959.Castro obsession with Venezuela was due to its geographical position as well as Venezuela’s oil production.Castro knew that he could use Venezuela as a spring board to send guerrillas through its territory to the rest of South America as well as sending weapons to the Colombian FARC with Venezuelan help.In every Cuban school at least one or two of their instructors are undercover DI Agents and ministry of the interior personnel.Actually Castro see Venezuela as his survival means and Castro also is using Venezuela’s military equipment for training.

  2. We need to Understand that,the Cuban embassies are full of legals and illegal diplomats that are working for the Cuban gobernment to subvert the countries where they are stationed.The Communist agents began to penetrate Venezuela political infrastructure in 1994 and now we have a totalitarian communist government in Venezuela installed there by the Cuban repressive Castro Government.Wake up America!
