MPA security at the World Bank office. On October 11, 2000 there was no logged-in

entry for "George McLeod". However, a World Bank staffer said that Mr McLeod

did come into the office once, was told that Mr. Mbida-Essama was busy and that if

McLeod wanted an interview he should try to make an appointment. Mr. Mbida-Essama

the Bank's office calendar of appointments has no record of a meeting between Mr.

Mbida-Essama and Mr. McLeod.
