FBI Section 135 FF-3 • Handwritten Affidavits

Section FF-3 — which comprises Section 135 and which is labelled in the Guyana Index as “Handwritten Affidavits” –– consists of 216 documents on 296 pages.

The listing below is complete for this section of the FBI’s FOIA release. The complete PDF for this section as released by the FBI is here.

The citation for these documents should open with the FBI’s official designation of these records, which is “RYMUR 89-4286.” Each individual page in these records has a unique number. The first page in the category of “Medical Releases”, for example, is marked “FF-3-8”. The complete citation for that page, then, would be “RYMUR 89-4286-FF-3-8”.

The documents on this page have been organized differently than on most other pages, since the affidavits and statements comprising the bulk of it are scattered throughout the section. As a result, the listing below breaks down the section into nine categories of documents, and while it includes the number both of documents and of pages in each category, it does not include individual PDF page numbers or specific citations. The pages are in sequential order within each category, however, and both the pdf and text version of each category does include the FBI’s citations.
