(b) and (d).

(S) Emboff, accompanied by Canadian Pol/Econ Officer Juan
Pablo Valdes, met with Jaime Freitas and Bernardo Motta of
Brazil's Financial Intelligence Unit (COAF) on March 24,
2005, to deliver reftel prenotification of the U.S. and
Canadian intent to nominate Lashkar e-Tayyiba (LET) to the
UNSCR 1267 list of terrorist entities associated with
Al-Qaida. Freitas, the second-in-command at COAF, undertook
to conduct a search of COAF's own databases for any LET
assets in Brazil, as well as to circulate the information to
the Central Bank, Federal Police and intelligence agency
(ABIN) for them to conduct similar searches. Both Canadian
and U.S. Emboffs emphasized the importance of the joint
approach as signaling our shared USG-GOC concern over the
importance of effective action against terror finance.
Emboff also delivered the pre-notification to Luisa Lopes da
Silva of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Office of Illicit
Transnational Activities.
