This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All documents on, about or concerning Omar Sharif (Born: April 10, 1932 (age 83), Alexandria, Egypt ; Died: July 10, 2015, Cairo, Egypt).
From the BBC obituary (see http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-33483877): "Actor Omar Sharif, best known for his roles in classic films Lawrence of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago, has died aged 83. [....] Egypt-born Sharif won two Golden Globe awards and an Oscar nomination for his role as Sherif Ali in David Lean's 1962 epic Lawrence of Arabia. [....] He won a further Golden Globe three years later for Doctor Zhivago. [....] Earlier this year, his agent confirmed he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease."
Given that this FOIA is submitted in my capacity as a journalist, I request that I be categorized as a media requester for the purpose of fees. Here is a selection of my published articles on MuckRock:
I have also been published in a number of other national media outlets:
As the requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com and pertains to a matter of considerable public interest, I further request a full waiver of all fees.
In the event that fees cannot be waived, 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.
