U.S. charges ex-ambassador with spying for Cuba over decades

The U.S. Justice Department has charged former ambassador to Bolivia, Victor Manuel Rocha, with spying for Cuba for over 40 years, describing it as “one of the highest-reaching and longest-lasting infiltrations” by a foreign agent into the U.S. government. Rocha, who served as U.S. ambassador to Bolivia from 2000 to 2002, is accused of multiple federal crimes, including acting as an illegal foreign agent and using a fraudulently obtained passport. The Justice Department alleges that Rocha worked for the Cuban government, seeking positions within the U.S. government to access non-public information and influence U.S. foreign policy. Rocha, who worked for the State Department from 1981 to 2002, admitted his decades-long collaboration with Cuba during meetings in 2022 and 2023 with an undercover FBI agent posing as a covert Cuban intelligence representative.
