1. On August 11, 2005, AmEmb Maputo RSO staff met with the
six Mozambican participants of the ATA/INL Police Executive
Role in Combating Terrorism Course held July 25-29, 2005. All
six of the participants were extremely enthusiastic about the
course and were eager to attend the follow-on LEED course to
be held in October 2005. The participants looked at
themselves as pioneers in developing an anti-terrorism task
force for Mozambique and have already met with the management
structure of the Mozambican Ministry of the Interior to
propose the idea. The participants' motivation for action was
partly due to the knowledge they gained of the other
participant countries efforts to combat terrorism, but mainly
from their newly acquired knowledge of international
terrorism and the role played by the international community
in combating terrorism. The police superintendent for Maputo
plans to hold a seminar for officers under his command in the
coming weeks. Participants have also expressed their interest
in providing such training to new cadets at the police
academy.

2. The RSO staff would like to express its appreciation to
DS/ATA, INL, and ILEA Gaborone for their continued hard work
in providing training for Mozambican law enforcement
officers. If practicable, the RSO office would request ILEA
Gaborone to forward any electronic media supplied to the
participants for this course and any future ILEA courses.
This material will aid the RSO's office in understanding what
course topics were presented and to improve local assistance
to the Mozambican police. Regards.
