1. (U) Embassy contacted Laurent Dufraix, Purchasing Manager for
Sogerma Services, the foreign consignee. He confirmed that the
end-user of the entire consignment of C-130 parts cited in the

point of contact regarding C-130 activity at Sogerma's office in
Douala, Cameroon:

Mr Jean Michel Pialia
Tel: +237 629 79 43
Fax: +237 343 61 32.


2. (U) Sogerma's support operations in Cameroon are limited and all
major billing and administrative work, including export license
applications, are handled at Sogerma Services' offices in Merignac,
France. Mr. Dufraix said he has not personally been to Cameroon,
but other staff in his office have. Mr. Dufraix also noted that EADS
sold Sogerma Services to TAT INDUSTRIES's Sabena Technics at the end
of 2006.
