SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED: DESIGNATION OF VENEZUELA-BASED
HIZBALLAH TERRORIST FINANCIERS

REF: STATE 68510

Classified By: POL/C David E. Henifin for reason 1.4 (d).

1. (C) On July 2, we delivered reftel demarche to Carlos
Cordero of the MFA's Department of Disarmament, Terrorism and
Organized Crime. Cordero seemed very interested that one of
the designees was a Venezuelan diplomat. Because Costa Rica
had no formal mechanisms to freeze assets for listed
entities, Cordero said he would pass the information to DIS
(Costa Rican intelligence) and also to SUGEF and SUGEVAL,
Costa Rican independent governmental oversight agencies for
banking and for the stock exchange, respectively. This
remains the GOCR's current procedure for handling terrorism
finance listings.
