To Whom It May Concern:
Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:
Any records that the FBI maintains about Lucio Urbutia, a Spanish bank robber who was infamous for bank robberies and forging checks. Lucio Urtubia was born on February 18th, 1931 and died on July 18th 2020 (source from Spanish language news: https://www.noticiasdenavarra.com/actualidad/sociedad/2020/07/18/fallece-navarro-lucio-urtubia-historico/1063846.html)
Among the records that the FBI should maintain on Lucio are records related to the forging of Citibank travelers checks in 1977. I am confident that the FBI maintains these records as the forgery of these documents caused Citibank stocks to collapse and it halted the acceptance of travelers checks around the world. Further, the life of Lucio is documented to have assisted the Black Panther Party, of which I know the FBI has already released records.
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.
There are eFOIA files available for you to download.
This is an appeal under 5 USC 552 to the processing of our request. I am challenging the adequacy of the search of records by the FBI.
