TAGS: PREL PGOV KDEM VE GT
SUBJECT: GUATEMALAN EMBASSY IN CARACAS TO OBSERVE APPEALS
REF: SECSTATE 98283
PolOff discussed reftel points with Silvia Corado, Director
for Multilateral Affairs at the Foreign Ministry on May 4.
Corado agreed that a large international presence is required
to guarantee the integrity of the appeals process for
revalidating the recall referendum. However, the Guatemalan
government's austerity program rules out sending a
delegation. Corado said members of the Embassy in Caracas
would be seconded to the OAS Observer Mission, but had no
additional details to share.
