From: Paul Galante

To Whom It May Concern:

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

Records relating to the 1993 investigation of a fatal shooting incident outside CIA headquarters, titled LANGMUR and Mir Qazi (aka Mir Aimal Kansi, Mir Aimal Kasi) (February 10, 1964 - November 14, 2002), the shooter. Proof of death is not required as his execution was widely reported: (https://web.archive.org/web/20100323145212/http://archives.cnn.com/2002/LAW/11/14/cia.killings.execution/). Per FBI standards and regulations, this is acceptable proof of death.

Please conduct a search of the Central Records System, including but not limited to the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices, for both main-file records and cross-reference records for all relevant names, individuals, agencies and companies. If any potentially responsive records have been destroyed and/or transferred to NARA, then I request copies of the destruction or transfer slips as well as any other documentation relating to, mentioning or describing said transfer or destruction, to include but not be limited to confirmation that the Bureau has no other copies of said records. If previously released records are available, then I request a rolling release consisting of those records while additional records are located and processed for release.

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.

Sincerely,

Paul Galante

To Whom It May Concern:

This is an appeal of FOIA request 1399175-000. I am appealing the integrity of the search performed. Considering the length of time involved in the manhunt of Qazi and the efforts to extradite him from Pakistan, the selection of pre-processed records provided are certainly not all the records that can be reviewed and released. This is not even taking into consideration the involvement of other agencies in the effort to bring Qazi to justice and the referrable records likely in the Bureau's possession. Please conduct a new search for investigatory and non-investigatory records, including but not limited to cross-reference records. I appreciate your anticipated cooperation in this matter.

Sincerely,
Paul Galante
