REF: SECSTATE 78727

1. On June 12, the Ambassador delivered reftel points and a
copy of the 2007 report to Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Director General Ambassador Umaru Wurie. The Ambassador
explained why Sierra Leone received a Tier Two ranking and
encouraged the GOSL to continue its efforts against
trafficking. Wurie responded the GOSL is making progress but
remains constrained by limited resources. He pledged the
GOSL's continuing commitment to combat trafficking. Wurie
said the recent passage of the Child Rights Act (septel) will
provide additional protection to children who are vulnerable
to trafficking.

2. In a separate meeting on the same date, the Ambassador
informed Vice President Solomon Berewa and Foreign Minister
Momodu Koroma of Sierra Leone's Tier Two ranking and delivery
of the report to the Director General of Foreign Affairs.
