REF: SECSTATE 175637

1. (SBU) The Terrorism Finance Coordinating Officer for
Embassy Prague is DCM Cameron Munter, 420-257-530-662 ext.
2303, email: MunterCP@state.gov. The TFCO Deputy is Richard
Hinman, Political officer, tel. 420-257-530-663 ext. 2313,
email: HinmanRC@state.gov.

2. (U) Post believes that a regional training course for FIU
personnel and other associated agencies would be highly
beneficial for our host nation counterparts to enhance
cooperation and expertise on this issue. Such training could
not only enhance the effectiveness of the individual FIUs,
but it could also facilitate (or in some cases, initiate)
contacts and coordination between FIUs within the region.

3. (U) Because of the complexity of the issue, the need for
consistent multilateral action, and the interagency nature of
USG actions against terrorist finance, we also feel that
periodic regional meetings and training for TFCOs and/or
their deputies from other embassies would help enhance both
our situational awareness and effectiveness across EUR.
Continued engagement through the US-EU Task Force and
emphasis upon the issue from visitors from inside and outside
of the Department will help also help keep terrorist finance
issues priorities on the GOCR agenda.
