This is a letter from the agent responsible for
CCTV recording systems at the
GALP stations requesting clarification about the
images required. The confusion
arose because the fax sent to them (see page
1400) asked for a period from 30
April to 6 May, while their client, Galpgeste,
had already asked only for the
period 11h03 to 11h36 on 4 May.
Galpgeste responded fully in pages

We inform you that we tried to find out from our
client Galpgest if they had recordings of images
from the period referred to by you, having been
informed that they have recordings of images
captured between 11.0 and 11.36 on 04-05-2007
from the Service Station in the Portimao-Lagos
direction. As this short period does not
correspond to your request, we would be grateful
if you would inform us if you require us to
obtain these images from our client, which we
would do as quickly as possible.
