E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PHUM SNAR MX
SUBJECT: MX #2008-093, DOJ/ATF LEAHY VETTING REQUEST


1. Action request. Post requests an expedited response to this
Leahy vetting request for participants in a DOJ/ATF Firearms
Identification and Trafficking course to commence in Mexico City on
April 10, 2008. The trafficking of arms into Mexico from the U.S.
represents a very sensitive issue for the GOM as the USG seeks to
deepen cooperation with Mexico in fighting organized crime. This
course represents an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the USG
commitment to fighting arms trafficking and strengthening our shared
efforts in this area. The GOM just provided post with the names of
individuals it proposes participate in this course. Post has
completed its own internal vetting process. Post respects the
Department's request for at least 10 business days to conduct its
vetting check. Given the importance of this course to advancing USG
objectives, Post would appreciate receiving a response from the
Department before April 10, fewer than the normally prescribed
minimum of 10 business days. Please advise soonest as Post will
need to cancel instructors and interpreters for this course in the
event participants are not vetted before the course commences.

2. Post possesses no credible evidence of gross violations of human
rights by the individuals listed below and requests that the
department conduct Leahy vetting check.

3. Name (Father, Mother, First), DOB, POB, Position,
Organization.
