Re Legat, Mexico City teletype, dated January 11, 1979, captioned, “RYMUR”.

The investigation into foreign bank accounts of the People’s Temple (PT) is being coordinated by the Civil Division, Department of Justice. In fact, they have obtained Panamanian attorneys to represent them in that country.

San Francisco is alert for information concerning foreign bank accounts and when found is transmitted to the Civil Division via FBIHQ. [Handwritten notation: Justice Department in Panama/regarding bank accounts of Peoples Temple]
