Bogota, August 18 (RHC)-- An investigation by Raya magazine reveals that Cuba was the target of espionage by Colombian military intelligence agencies under the previous government serving the interests of US agents.

Under the title Espionaje Internacional: Objetivo Cuba (International Espionage, Target Cuba), the magazine said it had access to thousands of classified documents of Colombian military intelligence agencies that show how they spied on Cuban diplomats and officials, leftist political leaders, journalists, and social leaders.

In statements to Prensa Latina, author Edison Bolaño explained that as a journalist, he has always been interested in Colombia's geopolitical issues and was very curious about tensions in the last four years between Bogota authorities and Cuba.

"I began to ask around, and, through confidential sources, after many conversations, I managed to gain access to more than a thousand files that reflect a whole espionage apparatus against Cuba and its diplomatic corps based in Colombia," he said.

According to the article, information was adulterated in the computer of a guerrilla chief to blame Cuba for the violent protest in Colombia at the end of 2019, 2020 and 2021.

The investigation points out that  "Charlie" was the code name for the operation.

It details that little by little, the Colombian spies, without a judicial order, carried out surveillance and monitoring of Cuban diplomats by infiltrating political meetings and commemorations of the Cuban Revolution.

This espionage was done by the military intelligence agency in conjunction with the National Intelligence Directorate, a dependency of the Presidency of the Republic of Colombia, Bolaño pointed out.

The article recalls that  "on January 11, 2021, before leaving the White House, former President Donald Trump, using the old policy of the internal enemy and the 'evidence' that Colombia had provided, again declared Cuba as one of the countries in the world that sponsor terrorism".
