Viewing cable 08MANAMA539, BAHRAIN ACCEPTS TIP ACTION PLAN, PREPARES FOR

If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

Discussing cables

1.(SBU) Charge delivered ref C points to MFA A/US Abdulaziz Al Khalifa on August 12. Al Khalifa thanked Charge for the advice on how to combat trafficking in persons. He praised IOM's collaborative efforts to train Interior Ministry officials, and welcomed additional training opportunities for the judiciary (ref B). Al Khalifa was appointed head of the new inter-ministerial policy committee called for in Bahrain's January 2008 anti-trafficking legislation. He said that the Minister of Social Development would order the creation of an implementation committee shortly.

2.(SBU) Al Khalifa said that the GOB and the Suzanne Mubarak Women's International Peace Movement had set November 15-17 as the dates for their joint regionally-focused anti-trafficking in persons conference (refs A and B). He anticipated invitees will include labor officials from sending countries, the Arab world, international partners, and the U.S. Al Khalifa promised to provide post with drafts of the program and invitee list once they are approved. ********************************************* ******** Visit Embassy Manama's Classified Website: XXXXXXXXXXXX********************************************* ******** HENZEL
