Former U.S. Ambassador Accused of Spying for Cuba Arrested

On Monday, authorities arrested a former U.S. ambassador accused of secretly working for Cuba and boasting that his work had “strengthened the revolution immensely.”

Onetime U.S. envoy to Bolivia Victor Manuel Rocha choked back tears at the defense table as family members entered the Miami courtroom of Chief Magistrate Judge Edwin G. Torres.

When the judge asked Rocha, 73, if he understood the charges, he replied, “I do.”

A foreign agent has infiltrated the United States government to the greatest extent and for the longest time, according to Attorney General Merrick Garland.

Garland told reporters Monday that people who are fortunate enough to serve in the United States government are given a great deal of trust by the public. “Betraying that trust by falsely pledging loyalty to the United States while serving a foreign power is a crime that will be prosecuted by the Justice Department with full force.”
