From: J Ader
To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
All records relating to or mentioning Pelé (23 October 1940 – 29 December 2022), born as Edson Arantes do Nascimento - a renowned Brazilian footballer (soccer player), regarded to be one of the greatest of all time (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pel%C3%A9 )
Please conduct a thorough search of the Central Records System, including but not limited to the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices - for both main-file records and cross-reference records for all relevant names, individuals, agencies and companies.
If any potentially responsive records have been destroyed and/or transferred to NARA, then I request copies of the destruction or transfer slips as well as any other documentation relating to, mentioning or describing said transfer or destruction, to include but not be limited to confirmation that the Bureau has no other copies of said records. If previously released records are available, then I request a rolling release consisting of those records while additional records are located and processed for release.
Here is a public news article to serve as proof of death: https://www.nytimes.com/2022/12/29/sports/soccer/pele-dead.html
The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.
In the event that there are fees, 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.
