Meyer Lanksy, Lucky Luciano, Vito Genovese, Albert Anastasia, Frank Costello (Luciano's stand in boss) Doc Statcher (Lansky's friend who had bribed Batista in 1933) and others met to discuss turning gambling in the Caribbean. Other mob activities also addressed. This occurred with the support of some Autentico politicians. Facing U.S. pressure to cut off medical supplies, Luciano would be forced to leave Cuba in March.
