SUBJECT: USAID/HONDURAS - NO PLANS FOR MONEY LAUNDERING
TRAINING AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE

REF: SECSTATE 257751



1. USAID/Honduras does not have any current or planned
activities involving training and/or technical assistance in
the areas of money laundering, counter terrorism finance, or
financial intelligence unit development. The Mission is not
aware of any training and/or technical assistance in these
activities that are being or will be conducted or sponsored
in Honduras by other donors, IFIs, and NGOs.



2. The Mission notes that in order to help the Honduran
government implement its new anti-money laundering law,
which entered into force in June 2001, the Embassy has
coordinated with experts in Treasury over the last six
months to provide several money laundering technical
assistance activities. USAID/Honduras has not been involved
in this effort.
