From: Joseph Lloyd

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Khun Sa, also known as Chang Chi 17 February 1934 – 26 October 2007), was a Shan warlord. He was born in Hpa Hpeung village, in the Loi Maw ward of Mongyai, British Burma.
He was dubbed the "Opium King" in Myanmar due to his massive opium smuggling operations in the Golden Triangle. He was commander-in-chief of the Mong Tai Army from 1985 to 1996 and the Shan United Revolutionary Army in 1996.

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.
