–Sharon is suppose to call H. Green at 2 PM today.

–Sharon called Mingo  who was upset at being interrupted in the middle of a meeting. He said NCB and Ryan  have been cleared but whether this means clearnace to come into the interior when we do not welcome them has to be answered by the Minister of Interior — DeRush. Mingo said he was doing what he could in regards to the others. If xx NBC is cleared to travel within the country, they must be accompanied by a rep. from the Ministry of Info, at all times. Someone, according to Rashleigh Jackson, is supposed to contact us from the U.S. Embassy to ask if we will see the NBC team and Ryan. If we say no; Jackson said it is up to Mingo whether they can come into the interior, However, Mingo said it is up to the Minister of Interior who Ann  is trying to reach.
