From: Emma North-Best

I am appealing the rejection in its entirety, as the Bureau has claimed similar exemptions for similar requests, all of which have been overturned by OIP. Further, the Bureau's assertion that information about FOIA processing would allow people to circumvent criminal investigation procedures is prima facie absurd and cannot be substantiated by facts.
