E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ETTC KOMC AR
SUBJECT: BLUE LANTERN LEVEL 3: PRE-LICENSE END-USE CHECK ON
APPLICATION 05-050072857

REF: STATE 156432

1. (SBU) Per Ref A request, post carried out a pre-license
check on Buccello y Asociados, purportedly based in Buenos
Aires, on December 12. It is Post's opinion that the company
will not/not be a responsible recipient of United States
Munitions List items. Post was unable to establish any bona
fides of Buccello y Asociados, including whether or not it
has any current business operations.

2. (SBU) Blue Lantern Officer went unannounced to business
address on December 12. (Since no phone number was included
in Ref A, making an appointment was impossible.) The
location is a residential building. The woman who answered
the door, and claimed to be the owner of the apartment,
stated that while her ex-husband had indeed rented the
apartment to Mr. Buccello in the past, Buccello had left in
early 2006. (The doorman confirmed that Mr. Buccello had not
maintained an office there since March, 2006.) She added
that mail still arrives there for Mr. Buccello and/or
Buccello y Asociados, and that a messenger comes periodically
to pick it up, but that she has no personal knowledge of
whether or not Buccello y Asociados is still operating in any
way.

3. (SBU) Considering that Buccello y Asociados has not been
physically located since 2006 at the alleged business address
used in 2007 in support of its license request, Post does
not/not recommend approval of the request.
