REF: STATE 60583

(SBU) PolOff delivered reftel demarche to Adil Dabwan,
trafficking in persons expert at the Ministry of Social
Affairs and Labor on June 15. Dabwan promised to discuss
Yemen's Tier 2 ) Watch List ranking with the Minister of
Social Affairs and Labor, and expressed his appreciation for
the early notification. Dabwan acknowledged that the ROYG
must pass legislation criminalizing trafficking of persons -
currently being discussed in Parliament - as well as work to
better identify and provide services for victims of
trafficking for commercial sexual exploitation. He expressed
his personal hope that the downgrade in Yemen's ranking would
provide the impetus for the ROYG to "finally complete this
important action."
