Kin renew demand for records
January 15, 2004
NEW YORK (AP) - Families of victims of the World Trade Center terrorist attacks renewed demands yesterday that the city release all documents and audiotapes related to the emergency response to the tragedy.
The event "has been shrouded in too much secrecy across the board," said Monica Gabrielle, who lost her husband. "We need to look at the ugly truth. Unless we do this, nothing will change."
Gabrielle and other survivors spoke at a Manhattan news conference announcing that they would challenge last week's appeals court ruling on a New York Times' request to view tapes of 911 calls made from the trade center on Sept. 11, 2001. The request - later joined by eight families - also sought the Fire Department's internal interviews following the attacks.
The State Supreme Court's Appellate Division ordered the department to release only partial transcripts of the interviews.
