1. (SBU) THE FOLLOWING RESPONSES ARE KEYED TO QUESTIONS
RAISED IN THE REFERENCED CABLE.
A) EMBASSY MAPUTO'S TERRORIST FINANCE COORDINATION
OFFICER (TFCO) IS DCM JAMES DUDLEY. CONTACT DETAILS:
Phone: 258-1-492-797
Fax: 258-1-490-071
Cell: 258-82-306-645
E-mail:dudleyjl@state.gov
TFCO Deputy and Action Officer is James Potts, Economic-
Political Officer. Contact details are:
Phone: 258-1-492-797
Fax: 258-1-490-114
Cell: 258-82-305-899
E-mail: pottsjh@state.gov
B) DISCUSSIONS OF TERRORIST FINANCE ISSUES ARE CARRIED
OUT, AS NEEDED, IN WEEKLY ECON-POLITICAL SECTION
MEETINGS AND IN POST SECURITY GROUP MEETINGS.
C) Post does not have a separate formal TF working
group.
D) Post believes that contact with TFCOs at other posts
would be useful. This does not happen currently. Most
sharing of best practices can be done through posting on
the EB classified website, but a regional meeting might
also be useful.
E) The Banco de Mocambique, the country's financial
regulatory body, continues to work with Post on
terrorist finance issues. Bank officials have been
cooperative and have the capacity to undertake certain
measures, such as freezing bank accounts as needed, but
lack investigative capacity. It remains to be seen if
public diplomacy and community education is needed to
increase the Bank's investigative tools.
F) Neither the TFCO nor the deputy has received
terrorist finance training from FSI or other sources.
G) Post requests detailed contact information for
appropriate State and Treasury officials on terrorist
finance-related cables, in order to more effectively
make follow-up inquires as a result of our contacts with
local officials.
