1. (C) This is an action request. Please see paragraph 4.


2. (C) The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) informed Post
by diplomatic note on November 26 that the Central Bank's
Anti-Money Laundering and Combating Financial Terrorism
Commission had identified and frozen two accounts that may
belong to Dr. Abdul Latif Saleh, whom the UN 1267 Committee
had added to its list of associates of Usama bin Laden.
According to the MFA, the two accounts contained modest sums
of money and had been opened more than two years ago.


2. (C) While the MFA stated that the accounts are frozen, it
has requested additional information to make sure that the
owner of the accounts is the same person designated by the
1267 Committee and US Executive Order. The MFA provided Post
with the following information on the owner of the accounts:

Name: Abdul Latif Saleh
DOB: 1959
Nationality: Jordanian
Father's Name: Fahed
Mother's Name: Suheila

As the MFA pointed out, the date of birth of the owner of the
accounts differs from that provided in the 1267 Committee's
information on Dr. Saleh.


3. (C) Action Request: Post requests that EB/ESC/TFS review
the information provided by the MFA, and instruct Post on how
to respond to the MFA's request.
