From: National Archives and Records Administration

Dear Ms. Hayes:

Thank you for submitting your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request
concerning an FBI file to the National Archives and Records Administration
(NARA), via the *FOIAOnline* website. We received your request on May 29,
2019.

This office handles FOIA and Privacy Act requests for the National Archives
and Records Administration's *operational *records (records created by this
agency). Because your *FOIAOnline *request is for records that are
*archival *records (records that were created by or originated in a
different agency but that may have been transferred to the legal custody of
NARA), we have forwarded it to our *Office of Research Services, Special
Access and FOIA* staff who handle FOIA requests for archival records.

Since the *Office of Research Services, Special Access and FOIA* does not
process FOIA requests through *FOIAOnline*, your request has been removed
from the *FOIAOnline* website and you will be assigned a new tracking
number by that office within the next 20 business days. In the future, if
you need to follow up with that office directly, please contact them at the
address below, or electronically via email.

From: National Archives and Records Administration

Dear Mr. Hayes,

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information Act request of May
29, 2019 for records in the custody of the National Archives and Records
Administration. Your request for FBI case file *45-HQ-11528* was received
in this office on May 30, 2019 and assigned FOIA tracking number *61605*.

My initial assessment found that the subject of case 45-HQ-11528 is Ainsley
Whitmore Alexander Clarke. The file consists of 3 pages, compiled as part
of a crime on the high seas investigation conducted between November 1977.

I have completed a line-by-line review of FBI file 45-HQ-11528 and released
information to the greatest extent possible. The file has been redacted to
protect the personal privacy of living individuals per 5 USC 552 (b)(6) and
5 USC 552 (b)(7)(C). A summary of the results of my review is provided
below:

FBI file 45-HQ-11528: 3 total pages; 2 pages released in full and 1 page
released in redacted form.

A courtesy copy of the sanitized version of the file is attached

Please note that the National Archives does not charge search fees for
archival records.

Also, please be aware that records transferred to the custody of the
National Archives are exempt from the fee and fee waiver provisions of the
Freedom of Information Act because a fee schedule was in effect prior to
enactment. The applicable section states that “nothing in this subparagraph
shall supersede fees chargeable under a statute specifically providing for
setting the level of fees for particular types of records” (5 U.S.C. 552
(a)(4)(A)(vi)). The relevant fee statute authorizes the National Archives
“to charge a fee for making or authenticating copies or reproductions of
materials transferred to the Archivist’s custody.” (44 U.S.C. 2116(c)). The
inability to grant the requested fee waiver does not constitute a denial
under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act

This concludes the processing of your request. If you have questions,
please contact me directly at john.perosio@nara.gov or 301-837-0617.

If you are not satisfied with my action on this request, you have the right
to file an administrative appeal within ninety (90) calendar days from the
date of this letter. Appeals must be in writing and may be delivered by
regular U.S. mail or by e-mail. By filing an appeal, you preserve your
rights under the Freedom of Information Act and present the deciding agency
with an opportunity to review your request and reconsider its decision. If
you submit your appeal by regular mail, it should be addressed to the
Deputy Archivist of the United States (ND), National Archives and Records
Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, Room 4200, College Park, Maryland
20740-6001. Both the letter and envelope should be clearly marked “FOIA
Appeal.” If you submit your appeal by e-mail, please send it to
foia@nara.gov, addressed to the Deputy Archivist, with the words “FOIA
Appeal” in the subject line. If you exercise your right to appeal, please
explain why you believe this response does not meet the requirements of the
Freedom of Information Act. All communications concerning this request
should reference FOIA tracking number 61605.

If you would like the opportunity to discuss my response and attempt to
resolve your dispute without initiating the appeals process, you may
contact our FOIA Public Liaison for assistance:
