Request #20-48

Dear Public Records Coordinator:


This is a request for public records under the Oregon Public Records Law ORS 192.324. I request that a copy of the following documents (or documents containing the following information) be provided to me:

  • All records pertaining to the detention of Tsuyoshi Shimamura, which occurred after he arrived in Seattle from Japan on Japan Airlines flight 68 to Seattle, which arrived at 10:30 a.m. on January 30th.

I am a journalist with The Oregonian and I am requesting these records to support valuable coverage of law enforcement officials. It is in the public interest for these records to be released in order to support accountability to the public and provide information about regional law enforcement. 

If you decline to release these records or any portion thereof, I request that you cite the specific provision of Oregon law that allows your agency to redact or withhold that material. 

Please release all segregable portions of the request as they become available.

Please provide records in an electronic format and email them to

Thank you for your time and attention to this request. If you have questions, please contact me at 510-712-6704 or
