CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIVE DIVISION (CID)
CID approves the expenditure of $50,000.00, in the Sitol case, to reproduce 6 xerox copies of approximately 20,000 documents by the Los Angeles Division. It is contemplated Los Angeles will utilize approximately 10 xerox machines obtained from the Xerox Reproduction Center in Los Angeles. SAC – Criminal, Los Angeles, advises Xerox Corporation will furnish one operator to assist the crew of Agents at each machine to reproduce the documents. The.SAC#further stated that these Xerox employees are cleared for top secret and will function in a support role to maintain the xerox machines during the reproducing operation.
The documents will remain in the custody of FBI Agents during the xeroxing process. Assistant United States Attorneys from Washington, D. C., in Los Angeles, have advised the SAC that it will be necessary to xerox the 20,000 documents obtained in the Sitol case so they can be reviewed without contaminating the evidence. Those documents which are not pertinent will probably be returned to the Founding Church of Scientology. If approved, CID will advise the Los Angeles Division by teletype and they will be instructed to submit the invoice to the attention of the Budget and Accounting Section, Finance and Personnel Division.
