APPEAL the exemptions as wrongfully stated by the FBI FOIA notice states, is unpersuasive as the person "my mother" is deceased per the document we sent in our FOIA Request. The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), allows "not only family", but any individual and\or citizen to request information from the government, but there are exemptions, as FBI mention one of those exemptions says that if someone's privacy is invaded by releasing the information, will not be released, until, that is, the person dies. -----In this FOIA request my mother is deceased.
Please honor request, release FOIA information.
