Per Ref A, on February 4, Post delivered talking points to the Ministry of National Security (MNS) regarding the upcoming OAS CICTE Fifth Regular Session in Port of Spain. The GOJ's delegation will be led by MNS Parliamentary Secretary Kern Spencer who will be accompanied by Karl
SIPDIS Hamilton, Director for Intelligence and Security. Hamilton advised Poloff that the GOJ would not be in a position to ratify the Inter-American Convention Against Terrorism until it passes its Terrorism Prevention Act (Ref B) which it is anxious to do. However, Hamilton could not state when the legislation was expected to be tabled in Parliament. He also noted that the GOJ had not prepared its annual report to CICTE because it "had not received a request nor a reminder to do so." TIGHE
