To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
A copy of all documents on, about or mentioning former Israel prime minister Ariel Sharon, including ELSUR and cross-reference documents. Proof of death is not required because his death has been widely reported.
An excerpt from the Jerusalem Post obituary (available here: http://www.jpost.com/National-News/Former-prime-minister-Ariel-Sharon-dies-at-85-337662):
"Former prime minister Ariel Sharon died on Saturday at Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, days after his condition deteriorated dramatically."
I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
The request has been rejected as being too vague, burdensome or otherwise unprocessable.
