Gabriel Garcia Marquez - Cuban Spy?


MEXICO'S intelligence service spied on the writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez for decades and considered him a Cuban agent, it has emerged.

The defunct DFS agency bugged the Nobel laureate's phone and monitored his movements from 1967 after he moved to Mexico with his family. The authorities suspected the Colombian author because of his leftist sympathies and friendship with Fidel Castro.

Declassified documents published by El Universal revealed the DFS kept a bulging file up until at least 1985, after which documents remain secret. It was the era of the ''dirty war'' waged by right-wing Latin American governments against suspected subversives.


In a tapped conversation with Jorge Timossi, director of Cuba's Prensa Latina news agency, Marquez mentioned he had given the publishing rights for his book Chronicle of a Death Foretold to Cuba's communist government.

"The above proves that Marquez, besides being pro-Cuban and pro-Soviet, is a propaganda agent at the service of the intelligence agency of that country," a DFS document said in 1982. The agency monitored the author's mediation between leftist movements and the French president, Francois Mitterrand. It also kept tabs on the Mexican writers Octavio Paz and Salvador Novo.

Marquez, 82, divides his time between Mexico and Cartagena, Colombia. He has kept his friendship with Castro.
