Dear J. Ader:

Thank you for submitting your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to
the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) via the
*FOIAOnline* website.
We received your request on September 28, 2020. Your request concerns an
FBI file.

Our office uses the *FOIAonline* portal for FOIA and Privacy Act requests
for the National Archives and Records Administration's *operational* records
(records created by this agency). Your *FOIAOnline *request is for records
that may be *archival* records (records created by or originated in a
different agency but that may have been transferred to the legal custody of
NARA), to which access is restricted. Therefore, we have forwarded it to
our *Office of Research Services, Special Access and FOIA* (RF) staff who
handle FOIA requests for such archival records.

Since *Research Services* does not process FOIA requests through
*FOIAOnline*, we removed your request from the *FOIAOnline* website. *Special
Access *staff will assign you a new tracking number, and respond directly
to you. In the future, if you need to follow up with that office directly,
please contact them at the address below, or electronically via email.

Dear J. Ader,

Thank you for your Freedom of Information Act request for records in the
custody of the National Archives and Records Administration. Due to the
COVID-19 pandemic, we are not able to process FOIA requests according to
our normal procedures. We have assigned your request the temporary tracking
number RF-319. When we resume normal operations, we will log requests into
our system in the order they were received. At that time, we will provide
you with a new FOIA tracking number and a more substantive response. We
apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and
patience.

Sincerely,
Brigitte Flynn
Special Access & FOIA Staff

From: National Archives and Records Administration

Dear J. Ader,

This is in reply to your Freedom of Information Act request, dated
September 29, 2020 for records relating to Frank Teruggi, Jr., including
FBI case file 100-HQ-474363. Your request was received in this office on
April 8, 2020 and assigned the case number 21-26886.

Your request for FBI records has been referred to our Special Access and
FOIA office. They will provide a separate response.

The National Archives at College Park may also hold a Department of Justice
case file for Teruggi. We hold litigation case files of the *Department of
Justice in Record Group 60: General Records of the Department of Justice*.
These records are arranged into numerical classes based on the infraction
of the law involved, and we have various name indexes that allow us to
locate cases pertaining to specific individuals.

Unfortunately, we cannot conduct a search for these records right now. Due
to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office
of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to
balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also
adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of our staff.
As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, we are unable to
provide a substantive response to requests that require us to consult the
records at this time. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate
your understanding and patience.

We also located responsive records in the Department of State Central File,
1973-1979, which is part of *Record Group 59: General Records of the
Department of State*. The Central File is the primary source for
documentation on U.S. foreign policy and events in various countries.
Documents created between 1974 and 1979 exist in an online database that
contains the telegrams and other correspondence of the Department of State.
Many of these documents are open and available online. You can view the
results of our search, access the documents, and conduct your own searches
here
<https://aad.archives.gov/aad/free-text-search-results.jsp?cat=WR43&bc=sl&q=teruggi&btnSearch=Search&as_alq=&as_anq=&as_epq=&as_woq=>
.

The telegrams are full-text searchable. The P-Reels, which contain
documents other than telegrams, are available in paper at the National
Archives at College Park. The P-Reel indexes are also available online. If
you see P-Reel Index numbers that are of interest to you in the set of
responsive records we linked to above, please let us know so that we may
help you obtain those documents. Documents numbered P80 and later must be
requested through the Department of State.

A helpful guide to the 1973-1979 Central File is located here:
https://www.archives.gov/research/foreign-policy/state-dept/rg-59-central-files/1973-1979.html

We also identified an additional series of responsive State Department
records:

Record Group 59
Records Relating to Horman and Teruggi Litigation, 1961 - 1977
<https://catalog.archives.gov/id/27499859>
Entry UD-14D 86

This series is classified and records in the series need to be reviewed for
categories of information exempted from disclosure under the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA). We are transferring your request to the National
Declassification Center staff for further action. The National
Declassification Center staff will be in contact about the status of your
request.

If you are searching for records relating to Teruggi's murder by the
Chilean military in the aftermath of the 1973 Chilean coup, many records
related to the coup were declassified and released as part of the Chile
Declassification Project. A searchable database
<https://foia.state.gov/Search/Results.aspx?collection=CHILE&searchText=*> of
these records is available on the State Department's website, and a search
of the database for "Teruggi" yields over 600 hits. The records in the this
database may overlap with some of our holdings, but it is likely that it
also includes material that either has not yet been transferred to us or
that is not available online through the National Archives.

If you have any questions about this database, please contact the
Department of State.

We will continue to process your request when the National Archive resumes
normal operations. For updates on our status, please visit
https://www.archives.gov/coronavirus.

David Castillo
