A couple stands accused of spying on the U.S. for Cuba for decades.
Wired PR News – A couple in the US has been accused of acting as spies for the Cuban government. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), Walter Kendall Myers and his wife Gwendolyn Steingraber Myers have been indicted in connection to allegations that they spied on the United States for 30 years for Cuba. Myers had reportedly been under investigation for three years.
The couple reportedly used shopping carts, morse code messages, and emails as spying tools to relay messages to Cuban leaders. As noted by the AP, they received little financial incentive for their actions, but expressed strong support for Cuba, which suggests an intrinsic motivation. The Myers entered a plea of not guilty in U.S District Court on Friday, and the two have been ordered to remain in jail pending a hearing on Wednesday.
