KPKO
SUBJECT: Possible Senegalese Additions to MINUSTAH

REF: STATE 12558

Senegal currently has 85 gendarmes deployed with MINUSTAH in Haiti,
a force currently projected to rise to 140 by July 2010.
Nonetheless, Gendarmerie Headquarters in Dakar has estimated that
another 110 personnel could be made available within two to three
months for a one-year deployment, contingent on unspecified
training and equipment support from third parties. Post will make
available to Gendarmerie HQ information provided in Para 8, reftel;
however, a demarche directly from UNDPKO/OMA may be the best avenue
to obtain prompt results.
