Reasons 1.4 (b) and (d)

(C) On July 22, post delivered reftel talking points to South
Africa's Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) and Financial
Intelligence Centre (FIC). DFA's multilateral desk passed on
the information to its delegation at the UN in New York, but
did not know if they had or would approach the Chinese about
this issue. DFA's multilateral desk confirmed that FIC
officials were the appropriate ones to respond to this
demarche. FIC Director Murray Michell is well aware of the
issue and has received the talking points. However, he is
currently out of the country traveling with South Africa's
Financial Action Task Force (FATF) President, Kader Asmal.
Post will report on Michell's response when received.
