1. (SBU) Poloff discussed the points conveyed reftels during
a September 13 meeting with Ministry of Foreign Affairs
Director of Humanitarian and Social Affairs Abdelmounaim El
Farouk, urging the Government of Morocco (GOM) to support
Felice Gaer's candidacy to the Committee Against Torture
(CAT).

2. (SBU) El Farouk responded saying that he would pass the
request to his superior, but was confident that the GOM would
support Gaer's candidacy. He said the GOM has excellent
relations with the USG and that Gaer and Morocco's delegate
to the CAT had a good working relationship. He added that
Gaer's resume and experience were impressive and made her
well suited to the position.
