104-10065-10129: CABLE ON HSCA REQUEST TO SET UP INTERVIEW.

08/04/78: Cable from Paris to Washington: WNINTEL: REF: WASHINGTON 268730: "1. As no one has yet talked to Casasin (Jacques G. Richardson) directly re HSCA request to talk to him, we do not know first of all if he willing to talk to HSCA, and secondly, when he will be free. 2. If possible, Trochta will attempt contact Casasin on or about 7 August and tell him about the upcoming interview. As a date, we would like to suggest 15 August...if interview to be held on embassy premises. To our knowledge, Casasin does not normally come to embassy, and we selected 15 August as this is a French holiday and embassy likely to be empty, certainly of all French employees, and most Americans as well. Interview could then be held in COS' office, which will be empty. DCOS will deal with matter and would like to meet Miss Brady prior to Casasin interview. Suggest Miss Brady call embassy on 11 or 12 August and ask for Mr. Frank Jeton...3. No file."
