HAVANA - For two decades, the parents of a Cuban man convicted of spying for the United States believed he was innocent. Now that all signs suggest he was a double agent working for Washington, they say they can only wish him a happy future.

Rolando Sarraff was sentenced to 25 years for collaborating with the United States while he worked for Cuba's Directorate of Intelligence, helping the Americans crack codes that exposed Cuban spies working in the United States, according to former US intelligence officials who knew of his case.

Sarraff, 51, is widely believed to be the spy that US President Barack Obama spoke of last week when he announced an end to five decades of enmity with communist-run Cuba and a prisoner swap that accompanied it.
