Through his lawyer, Frank Calzon, an anti-Castro zealot, has taken issue with Diana Barahona’s article on Reporters without Borders, which recently ran on this site, and in which Calzon featured in a very marginal role.Calzon’s lawyer tells us his client says that he is not a "former special CIA agent", has "never been employed by the CIA", "has never been a member – much less a leader – of the National Liberation Front of Cuba" and "has never supported violence as a means of liberating Cuba”.

We have removed the relevant passages concerning Calzon from Barahona’s report.
