                  MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER


Adopted:  July 24, 2001                                              
Released:  July 25, 2001

By the Chief, Enforcement Bureau:

     1.   This Memorandum Opinion and Order (``Order'') cancels a 
$100,000 Notice of Apparent Liability (``NAL'') issued to Telmex 
International Ventures USA, Inc. for apparent violations of the 
terms and conditions of its grant of authority for transfer of 
control, and its section 214 authorization to provide 
international switched resale services to all points, including 
Mexico.1  

     2.   Having reviewed the record, we conclude that the law in 
          this area was not clear enough to justify the 
          imposition of a forfeiture under the circumstances 
          presented.2  We note that we need not address here the 
          continuing applicability of the section 214 condition 
          at issue in the NAL. 

     3.   Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that, pursuant to Section 
504(b) of the Act3 and Section 1.80(f)(4) of the Commission's 
rules,4 the NAL issued to Telmex International Ventures USA, Inc. 
IS CANCELLED.

     4.   IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, a copy of this Order shall 
be sent by certified mail, return receipt requested, to counsel 
for Telmex International Ventures USA, Inc., Gary M. Epstein, 
Esq., Latham & Watkins, 555 11th Street, N.W., Suite 1000, 
Washington, D.C. 20004.
