FOIA Appeal to U.S. Justice Department, Ghetto Informant Program

Freedom of Information Act Appeal

Subject: Ghetto Informant Program

FOIPA Request Number: 1147563-000

Dear OIP Director:

Along with a letter dated May 5, 2010, the FOIA office of the FBI released to me 14 pages of the file Ghetto Informant Program, which previously had been processed for a different requestor.

I wish to appeal this release of records to me because I do not believe the FOIA FBI office conducted a thorough search of their files for the Ghetto Informant Program.

The material sent to me consists only of several memos dated either Oct. 5, 1972 or Oct. 6, 1972. Please note that the Ghetto Informant Program opened in 1968 and closed sometime after October 1972. Thus, there is no material covering the years 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, and most of 1972. For example, there is no material in the FBI file about the opening of the Program during the late 1960s or about the closing of the Program in the 1970s.

I had requested the material be released in an electronic form and hope this will apply to future releases for this request.
