The Herald-Tribune, November 26, 1965, "Two Exile Chiefs Cited" by The Associated Press.

MIAMI - Two leaders of a Cuban exile group were arrested today and charged with conspiring to extort money from other Cubans.

The FBI said Dr. Orlando Bosch Avila was held in lieu of $15,000 bond at Hartford, Conn., after a hearing before a U.S. Commissioner there. The FBI said Marcelino Garcia Jimenez would be given a hearing in Miami this morning.

Bosch, 29, and Garcia, 57, are officials of the Insurrectional Movement for Revolutionary Recovery (MIRR). It has raided Cuba several times.

The FBI said a federal grand jury in Miami accused the pair in indictments Tuesday of trying to extort sums totaling $25,000 from Cubans in Coral Gables, Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Clewiston.
