SUBJECT: MEXICO TO ATTEND UN.GIFT AND THE VIENNA FORUM TO
HUMAN TRAFFICKING, SEEKS MEETING WITH G/TIP AMBASSADOR LAGON

REF: 07 STATE 150902

1. Graciela Gomez Garcia, Director for the International
Crime Prevention Unit at Mexico's Foreign Ministry (SRE),
told PolOff February 8 that Mexico's newly appointed Special
Prosecutor for Violent Crimes Against Women, Maria Guadalupe
Morfin Otero, would lead Mexico's delegation to the upcoming
UN GIFT conference in Vienna. Gomez conveyed Morfin Otero's
strong interest in meeting with Ambassador Lagon on the
margins of the conference. Gomez assured us Mexico shared
our interest in discussing our collective efforts to better
meet the challenges of TIP operationally -- particularly in
view of Mexico's focus on implementing its recently adopted
TIP law -- and said Mexico had no intention of making any
political declarations in Vienna.

2. Other representatives from Mexico's delegation will
include:

--Ambassador Alejandro Diaz Y Perez Duarte, Mexico's
Ambassador to Austria
--Adrian Franco Zevada, Coordinator for International Affairs
at Mexico's Attorney General's Office (PGR)
--Minister Ulises Canchola Gutierrez, Chief of Mexico's
Embassy in Austria
--Dr. Francisco Penaloza Montes de Oca, General Coordinator
for the Specialized Unit on Investigation of Trafficking of
Minors and Illegal Immigrants (PGR)
--Monica Rios Tarin, Legal Director General and Institutional
Liaison for Mexico's National System for Family Development
(DIF)
--Graciela Gomez Garcia, Director for the Foreign Ministry's
Office of International Cooperation in Crime Prevention
--Guillaume David Michel Blin, Second Secretary, Mexican
Embassy in Austria
--Monserrat Iglesias Servin, Under Secretary for Consular
Affairs, National Migration Institute (INM)
--Jazmin Martir Alegria, Deputy Director for DIF
--Angel Alonso Diaz-Caneja, PAN Senator

3. Action Request: Ambassador Lagon's recent visit to
Mexico was well received by the GOM. Morfin Otero's request
for a meeting with Ambassador Lagon represents a good
opportunity to meet a key player in the Attorney General's
office and stress the importance we attach to Mexico's
creating a vetted unit on TIP cases. Post recommends
Ambassador Lagon meet -- time permitting -- with Morfin
Oteroon on the margins of the UN GIFT conference.
