SUBJECT: FOREIGN TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS - POST HAS NONE TO
RECOMMEND FOR INCLUSION IN FTO LIST

REF: STATE 179250

Classified By: Charge d'Affaires, a.i., Roger Pierce.
Reasons 1.5 (B) and (D).



1. (C) Upon receipt of reftel Post reviewed the legal
criteria for designation and determined that Post does not
have any additional foreign terrorist organizations (FTO) to
recommend for inclusion in the list of FTOs.



2. (C) Post notes that both the FARC and to a lesser extent
the AUC have been active in Honduras attempting to exchange
cocaine for weapons. GOH authorities recently arrested a
Colombian citizen named Ethalson Mejia Hoy who entered
Honduras using a false identity carrying a small amount of
marijuana. He is allegedly a member of the FARC seeking to
arrange a drugs for guns transaction.
