In a cable in June of 1964, AMPAN-18 reported on Manuel Ray Rivero (AMBANG-1). Also, a dispatch in September, 1965, stated that AMPAN-18 was the brother-in-law of AMSHED-1. A-18 reported that AMSHED-1 had told him of the problems that AMLEO-3 (Capt. Jose Ricardo Rabel Nunez) was having. AMPAN-18 was told that JMWAVE had no interest in AMLEO-3 and to drop the case. He was to inform his case officer of any relevant information on AMLEO-3's status though.

A damage report in March of 1968 on AMSTALK-1 (Miguel Angel Diaz Isalgue), stated that AMPAN-18 was exposed to the former by an alias, as an indigenous agent personnel.
