1988 Cuban Diplomat Expelled From Britain For Shooting A Man

Mr Medina Perez was Cuba's commercial attaché. He drew a gun and fired it in the Bayswater area of London on this day. A British secret service agent was injured. Perez, along with the Cuban ambassador, Oscar Fernandez-Mell, were expelled from the country.

It appears that Mr Perez had noticed a number of people shadowing him as he walked back to his flat.

It was alleged that Florentino Azpillaga, a former Cuban intelligence agent, was one of those following him. Azpillaga tried to persuade Perez to defect. Mr Perez then drew his gun and fired.
