SUBJECT: PARAGUAY: PARTICIPATION IN FOURTH GLOBAL FORUM ON
FIGHTING CORRUPTION

REF: STATE 063279

On 4/27, PolCoun met with Mario Sandoval, MFA's Director of
Multilateral Affairs, to urge Paraguay to send a strong
delegation to the upcoming Global Forum on Fighting
Corruption in Brazil in June. Sandoval recognized the value
of Paraguay's participation in this Forum but asked for more
information about the level of delegation the U.S. and others
were contemplating sending so as to properly gauge the level
Paraguay would seek to send. PolCoun and Sandoval agreed
Carlos Walde, a former businessman working as a Senior
Advisor at Minister Level to President Duarte, might make a
strong head of delegation. Walde, a Mennonite widely
respected for his honesty, is President of a
multi-institutional consultative entity on corruption (CISNI)
that is made up of representatives from both within the
Government and civil society. It would be helpful to receive
more information that we could share with the GOP regarding
the compostion of the U.S. delegation.
