NY Times: F.B.I. Is Seeking to Interview Jailed Activists

As part of a continuing criminal civil rights investigation of the New York Police Department, the F.B.I. is seeking to interview protesters who were arrested in 2004 during the Republican National Convention and then had the charges against them dismissed. Investigators are specifically seeking one protester whose case prompted the federal inquiry.


"We are attempting to determine if any police officers' conduct violated federal civil rights statutes," said the two-page letter, dated May 11, which was sent by agents from the New York field office of the F.B.I.
