Citing a single, anonymous source, Prensa Latina (PRELA) claims the US Embassy “finances operations of the Direction of Intelligence and Security (DIS) in Costa Rica,” which it predictably accuses of corruption, etc.

While PRELA has a long history of collaboration with Cuban intelligence, what’s really interesting about this article is that it follows, by two months, a Cuba Confidential exposé identifying Cuban Ambassador Leda Elvira Peña Hernández as a career Directorate of Intelligence (DI) officer. Peña Hernández, the second Cuban Ambassador to Costa Rica, died on June 26. She had served as Ambassador since September 2012.

So after getting caught running a spy-base in San José, Havana is alleging US interference in Costa Rica’s internal affairs? In the immortal words of William Shakespeare, “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.”

  1. Cuban PRELA is just another speaker agency in favor of the Dictatorship as well as espionage Center the same as ICAP and many other Cuban Organizations their simple homework is to misguide information and deter sources from knowing the truth.The whole entire Cuban society is an Spy society.From the Pioneros to the MININT,they all work for the Cuban regime.
