(S) Emboff delivered Reftel prenotification of USG intent to
nominate Jama'at Al-Tawhid wa'al-Jihad (JTJ) to the UNSC 1267
list to Luiza Lopes da Silva of the Foreign Ministry's Office
for the Combat of Illicit International Activities and to
Jaime Freitas, the number two in Brazil's Financial
Intelligence Unit (COAF). Freitas undertook to search COAF's
databases and share the list with relevant GoB entities that
work with COAF, including the Central Bank and intelligence
agency (ABIN), for them to conduct similar searches. Emboff
pointed out to Lopes da Silva that the GoB should have a
particular interest in this case since JTJ and al-Zarqawi had
claimed responsibility for the killing of Brazilian diplomat
and UN envoy Sergio Viera de Mello. Da Silva promised to
follow up.
