Viewing cable 09CAIRO2053, DEMARCHE DELIVERED: UN CONVENTION AGAINST CORRUPTION REF: STATE 106225 (SBU) On October 19, we delivered reftel points to MFA Deputy Director for International Legal Affairs and Conventions Ibrahim El-Diwany, urging Egypt to join the international consensus on a transparent and effective review mechanism for the UN Convention Against Corruption at the November 9-13 Doha Conference. El-Diwany had no substantive response, and said that the Public Prosecutor's office has the lead on the issue. At El-Diwany's request, we sent the MFA a dipnote on October 21 that requested a meeting with Judge Ahmed El-Deniri at the Public Prosecutor's office and included reftel talking points as a nonpaper for Judge El-Deniri. El-Diwany confirmed that the Public Prosecutor's office received the dipnote. We will deliver reftel demarche to the Public Prosecutor's office in person when we are granted a meeting. Scobey

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.
