Communications

From: Tom Cantrell

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

American citizen Martin Matz (author) was incarcerated in a Mexican prison in the 1970's when he was released back to the U.S. to be supervised by the United States Justice system as one of many Americans who had been released from foreign detention under an international agreement worked out during the administration of President Carter. I'm researching a book on Martin Mats for which I might be able to use the requested information in his biography.
Sincerely,
Tom Cantrell

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.

Sincerely,

Tom Cantrell

From: Department of Justice, Office of the Attorney General

The Executive Office for United States Attorneys has received your Freedom of Information Act request and assigned the above number to the request.
You have requested records concerning a third party (or third parties). Records pertaining to a third party generally cannot be released absent express authorization and consent of the third party, proof that the subject of your request is deceased, or a clear demonstration that the public interest in disclosure outweighs the personal privacy interest and that significant public benefit would result from the disclosure of the requested records. Since you have not furnished a release, death certificate, or public justification for release, the release of records concerning a third party would result in an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and would be in violation of the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C.§ 552a. These records are also generally exempt from disclosure pursuant to sections (b)(6) and (b)(7)(C) of the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. § 552.
We will release, if requested, any public records maintained in our files, such as court records and news clippings, without the express authorization of the third party, a death certificate, or public justification for release. If you desire to obtain public records, if public records exist in our files, please reply with a letter asking for the public documents. Please send your letter to the address above.
Should you obtain the written authorization and consent of the third party for release of the records to you, please submit a new request for the documents accompanied by the written authorization. A form is enclosed to assist you in providing us the authorization and consent of the subject of your request. Your name should appear in the section titled “Optional.” The authorization must be notarized or signed under penalty of perjury pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 1001. Please send your new request to the address above. Any new request you submit should also specify in which federal judicial district the prosecution occurred or which United States Attorney's Office prosecuted the case against the subject of your request.  The limited research we were able to conduct on the Internet did not disclose where the subject's prosecution took place.
[     ]     Please note that your original letter was split into separate files (“requests”), for processing purposes, based on the nature of what of what you sought.   Each file will have a separate Request Number (listed below), for which you will receive a separate response:
This is a final action on this above-numbered request. If you are not satisfied with my response to this request, you may administratively appeal by writing to the Director, Office of Information Policy (OIP), United States Department of Justice, Sixth Floor, 441 G Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001, or you may submit an appeal through OIP's FOIAonline portal by creating an account on the following website: https://foiaonline.regulations.gov/foia/action/public/home. Your appeal must be postmarked or electronically transmitted within ninety (90) days of the date of my response to your request. If you submit your appeal by mail, both the letter and the envelope should be clearly marked “Freedom of Information Act Appeal.”
You may contact our FOIA Public Liaison at the telephone number listed above for any further assistance and to discuss any aspect of your request. Additionally, you may contact the Office of Government Information Services (OGIS) at the National Archives and Records Administration to inquire about the FOIA mediation services they offer. The contact information for OGIS is as follows: Office of Government Information Services, National Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road-OGIS, College Park, Maryland 20740-6001; e-mail at ogis@nara.gov; telephone at 202-741-5770; toll free at 1-877-684-6448; or facsimile at 202-741-5769.
