ReBQtelcall, FBIHQ, December 29, 1978.

AUSA [Assistant US Attorney] Bernie Fried, Chief Assistant, United States Attorney, ED NY, telephonically advised that attorney William Kunstler had sought to enjoin FBI from conducting interviews of arriving Guyana survivors without first advising them of the fact that an attorney was present to talk with them if they chose to do so.

Fried advised that USDC Judge Neaher, EDNY, ordered the agents were “not” to advise survivors that lawyers were present nor should they be advised of their Miranda rights. However, should an attorney be requested by any individual, that person should be advised that Kunstler or his representative

were available to see him, and should be allowed to do so if they so choose. In addition, should any survivor refused to talk without the presence of attorney interview should be terminated.
