It is our understanding that these letters are NOT legally binding summons. As always, we strongly urge you to exercise your right to remain silent, and to NOT speak with the police. This includes Internal Affairs (IA). Anything you say to IA will go directly to the police who will be indicting you or your comrades. Do not be fooled! If you believe you have information about police misconduct, take it to the NLG. No one except movement lawyers should be discussing anything with any police agent.
OPD has been sending people letters telling them that they may be a witness to criminal activity and asking them to come in. It appears that these letters are being sent to people who were arrested on January 28th but there may be more we aren’t aware of.
