State Department, formally requested that the Cuban government deport Luciano to Italy. The Cuban government balked. Inside the presidential palace, President Grau San Martín held a meeting with a group of powerful political figures. In attendance was Prime Minister Carlos Prío and also Alfredo Pequeño, minister of the interior. It was the opinion of all that Luciano was in Cuba on a legitimate Italian passport, that his visa was in order, and that he had done nothing illegal in Havana. There was no legislative requirement to expel Luciano as long as he continued to behave in a lawful manner.

He wanted to “buy in” with the Cubans so that the Mob could begin to develop its own gambling infrastructure on the island. The person Lansky had set his sights on was a young military man on the rise in Cuba named Fulgencio Batista. It is not known if Lansky had actually met Batista at this point or merely designated him as a likely entry point into the volatile, complex world of Cuban politics. Either way, Luciano liked what he heard. The proposition made sense. With Prohibition coming to an end through government repeal, the Mob was looking to diversify and Cuba seemed like a smart move.

He also brought assorted trinkets—a gold cigarette case, a gold watch, and other items—that he presented as gifts to Luciano and other mobsters in Havana. According to a former member of the Hotel Nacional staff, Jorge Jorge, Sinatra also performed exclusively for a gathering of mobsters in the hotel’s banquet room. Jorge, who was assigned to serve Luciano and his friends because he spoke English, sometimes brought breakfast to a special suite that had been set aside for Sinatra. Jorge recalled that he and other busboys often delivered room service in the presence of Sinatra, Luciano, and Lansky, who shuttled back and forth between New York, South Florida, and Havana on a regular basis.
