GORM REQUESTS RELEASE OF GUANTANAMO DETAINEE


--------------------------



(C) On May 11, Mission received an official note from
the Maldivian government again requesting the release of
Maldivian citizen Ibrahim Fauzee, who is currently being
detained in Guantanamo Bay. (The last USG communication
on the issue to the GoRM was an early March 2004 note
from the Department informing it that the decision had
been made not to release the Maldivian at present.)
Given the impending visit to Maldives by Assistant
Secretary Rocca, we do not think the GoRM's May 9 note

is a coincidence. We included this issue in our
scenesetter cable for A/S Rocca late last week along
with a proposed line of response. We'll review it with
A/S Rocca before we take her over to Male'. A copy of
the note is being sent to the Desk. (POL)
