Communications

From: Avinash Samarth

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request:

(1) Any and all complaints made to the OIG referencing the U.S. Parole Commission's timetable and/or delays in holding preliminary, evidentiary, or final hearings about violations or revocations of parole.

(2) Any and all reports or reviews by the OIG referencing the U.S. Parole Commission's timetable and/or delays in holding preliminary, evidentiary, or final hearings about violations or revocations of parole.

(3) Any and all records describing DOJ or any DOJ subcomponent policy or practice about holding preliminary, evidentiary, or final hearings about violations or revocations of parole of persons who are arrested outside of Washington, D.C.

To the extent that any of these documents contain information that may be properly withheld under the FOIA, I ask that information be redacted, rather than the document be withheld in full. This is a requirement under Section (b) of the FOIA, which directs agencies to release to FOIA requesters any reasonably segregable, non-exempt information that is contained in those records. See 5 U.S.C. § 552(b) ("Any reasonably segregable portion of a record shall be provided to any person requesting such record after deletion of the portions which are exempt under this subsection.").

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.

Sincerely,

Avinash Samarth
