1. (SBU) We delivered reftel demarche July 15 to Luis Felipe
Fernandez de la Pena, Special Ambassador for
Counterterrorism, and Juan Antonio Aliaga Mendez, the
Ministry of Economy's Deputy Director for Inspection and
Control of Capital Movements. In a July 22 meeting, Desk
Officer Miguel Garcia-Herraiz Roobaert of the International
Terrorism Unit, informed us that the MFA forwarded the CIRA
names to the Ministry of Interior and the Spanish
Intelligence Agency; the Ministry of Economy forwarded the
names to the Spanish financial intelligence unit (SEPBLAC).
Garcia-Herraiz also noted that CIRA was already listed as a
terrorist organization by the EU and if the banks locate any
funds, they are obligated to report the accounts to the
authorities for asset freezing. He expressed doubt, however,
that any CIRA funds exist in Spain. In the event funds are
located, he promised to contact us.
