Dear Chris, I see no reason not to discuss such an important issue before the SLOBs meeting. No veo la razón para no discutir un tema tan importante antes de la reunión de la Junta de Surpevisión.
I'm including Edgar in the mail so he can be aware and keep track of this situation. Estoy incluyendo a Edgar en el mail, asi el podras estar conviente y hacer seguimiento de esta situación. We think we should be aware if someone is asking for funds on our name. Don't you? Nosotros pensamos que debemos estar informados si alguien pide fondos en nuestro nombre. Usted no?
