Thanks, I missed it! It was also interesting to read, that the Mexican
attempt went bust. :-(

Can we get an English translation of the proposed law? We could try to adapt
that to the UK legal system and pass it to local MPs as a proposal,
including the correspondence between MS Peru and the official from the Peru
administration. I would like to see the impact of such an attempt. Whether
they would turn it down immeadiately or if they would pass it on and discuss
it with other MPs.

Do you volunteer to take this task up? Could you prepare this information
for us? I think, this is definitely a very good opportunity and we should
give it a try!

Thanks for bringing this up!!!
