SUBJECT: BRAZIL: DEMARCHE DELIVERIES: TERRORIST FINANCE DESIGNATIONS
UNDER EXECUTIVE ORDER 13224

REFTEL: A) STATE 127070 B) STATE 125415 C) STATE 114408

1. (SBU) On 12 December 2008, ECONOFF met Council for the Control
of Financial Activities (COAF) official Bernardo Motta to follow up
previous discussions regarding the recent USG designations of
individuals and organizations as supporters of terrorism under
Executive Order 13224 (refs A, B, and C).

2. (SBU) Following standard procedure, COAF entered the names of
the designated individuals and organizations into to their databases
and crosschecked them for matches. The search yielded no results. A
hit would have indicated that the designee, or its aliases, has
assets, bank accounts or property in Brazil. The official, however,
cautioned that COAF has no way of knowing if a designee is using an
alias if it is not provided. According to the official, since its
establishment, COAF has yet to find a match in its system from the
lists shared by the USG.

3. (SBU) COAF, the official explained, forwards the names of the
designees to the Brazilian Federal Police (DPF), the Brazilian
National Intelligence Agency (ABIN), and the Brazilian Central Bank,
who keep them in their databases for potential use in criminal
investigations, intelligence analysis and operations, and financial
tracking, respectively. COAF does not share its information with
third countries unless it has the originator's written consent.
COAF noted the USG is the originator of 99 percent of COAF
foreign-sourced data.
