Embassy transmitted reftel note verbale on June 3 to MFA
Director for Consular Affairs and Assistance Miguel Angel de
Frutos Gomez. Poloff followed up with Javier Suarez of the
Office of Consular Affairs to convey USG interest in Mr.
Henriquez' case and our desire to see him resettled as
swiftly as possible. Suarez was aware of the case through
information received from the Ministry of Interior's Asylum
Office, which had received an asylum application from Mr.
Henriquez' Spanish attorney, Ariel Fraga. Suarez said the
USG note verbale would initiate a GOS interagency process to
determine whether Mr. Henriquez would be likely to be
approved for asylum if he were permitted entry into Spain.
Post will track this case and report developments as
