Dear Mr. Al Tamimi:1

This firm represents Attorney Michael Flynn to whom you recently sent a note regarding Eugene Ingram and his “associates”. This note represents the first and only contact Attorney Flynn has had with you and was received by him on March 2, 1985.

This office received a copy of the note. I understand from reading it that you desire to tell the truth about the matters set forth in your affidavit which was given to Mr. Ingram. I further understand that you desire to tell Attorney Flynn’s representative that the statements in your affidavit are false and that your affidavit was part of a scheme to frame Attorney Flynn.

I have enclosed a declaration. If you sign it and return to me, I will make arrangements to meet with you and your attorney in Italy to discuss in detail your retraction of the statements previously made by you.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Very truly yours,

Robert S. Potters



Mr. Vittori Girardi
