Obama administration sued over alleged records of payments to anti-Castro journalists

The so-called Cuban Five were arrested in 1998 and convicted three years later by a federal jury in Miami. The Cuban government has acknowledged that they were intelligence agents but says they were sent to keep tabs on the anti-Castro exile community, not the U.S. government.

The plaintiffs has received records of payments from other sources and posted them on the Internet. 

The State Department did not respond to a request for comment.
