The Minister in the Dominican Republic ( Schoenfeld ) to the Secretary of State

23. My telegram No. 22, April 18. Todd called on me this morning and asked me to endeavor to arrange an opportunity for him to communicate with Barletta. Accordingly I am writing to the Minister for Foreign Affairs informally in the sense of the Department’s telegram number 8 and requesting him to advise me whether and if so when I may present Todd to him for the purpose of making desired arrangements.2

  1. In telegram No. 27, April 23, 11 a.m., the Minister in the Dominican Republic reported that, in reply to his informal letter of April 19, the Minister for Foreign Affairs, in a note dated April 22, stated that the request had been referred to the judge in charge of the proceedings who had replied that Mr. Barletta was incommunicado. The Minister for Foreign Affairs added that the Government had no power to modify this judicial decision. (339.115 General Motors Export Co./19)
