¶3.  Post has reviewed available human rights files; the above 
individuals have not been determined to be identifiable with 
individuals involved in or accused of human rights abuses. 
 
¶4. Post realizes that, due to delays in the Government of El 
Salvador's provision of names and information regarding 
prospective trainees, this request does not meet the 10-day 
timeframe usually required for completion of the vetting 
process.  We would nonetheless appreciate all efforts by the 
relevant bureaus to facilitate these candidates' 
participation.
