                                                        Chicago, IL   60601-6219



I, Michael Williams, declare that I am the Defendant in the above-entitled proceeding. I am not an attorney, do not have the funds necessary to retain one, have not been appointed one despite my many persistent requests, and am thus being forced to prepare this motion myself, even though I am not qualified to do so.

On 22. July 1994, Defendant filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the F.B.I., seeking information on the unlawful seizure of his assets and their present location. This letter is included in this motion as Attachment No. 1.

When the F.B.I. failed to respond, Defendant wrote to F.B.I. Director Louis Freeh on 18. August 1994. This letter is included in this motion as Attachment No. 2.

Defendant has never received any response to his two letters.

Defendant has never been provided with a proper inventory of the property seized from his home at the time of his arrest on 18. March 1988.

The F.B.I. seems determined to hide all information they have on the unlawful seizure of Defendant's property from Defendant and the Courts, including its whereabouts. Defendant feels certain this is because the seizure was unlawful, and that any and all items of value have been sold long ago, and any items of purely sentimental, legal or political value have been disposed of long ago. This presumption is reinforced by the fact that the F.B.I. took no action to provide Defendant with any hearings on his unlawfully seized property until they were contacted by U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein regarding Defendant's case.

Defendant has never been allowed to properly litigate the facts of this case, including the unlawful seizure of his property.

Since the information Defendant seeks in this Freedom of Information Act request is crucial to this case, Defendant asks the Court to order the F.B.I. to immediately provide him with any and all files they have on him, with particular emphasis on the property they seized from him at the time of his arrest on 18. March 1988.


                                      Respectfully submitted,





                                      MICHAEL WILLIAMS, in Pro Se
