1. (C) The Ambassador reiterated our request for Peru to
support the candidacy of Paolo Carozza for commissioner on
the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (Ref B) to
Foreign Ministry Under Secretary for Political Affairs Oscar
Maurtua on 5/27. Maurtua said that Peru is being heavily
lobbied by Bolivia to support the latter’s candidate for this
position, and that Foreign Minister Manuel Rodriguez will
have to make the final decision. He added that he would
inform the Foreign Minister of the Ambassador’s request. The
Ambassador said that he would call Rodriguez on this issue
next week.

2. (C) NOTE: The Foreign Minister continues to recover
from a serious illness (a lung infection accompanied by what
appears to have been hepatitis) that had him hospitalized for
nearly a month. He currently is working out of his home,
handling Ministry affairs for several hours each day.
According to Maurtua, Rodriguez’ managed five hours of work
the previous day, which so exhausted him that he could not
deal with business on the 27th. END NOTE.
