Alleged FBI Informant Files Lawsuit

Posted:

According to a recent report a man, who claims that he was a former FBI informant, has filed a lawsuit against the government. He claims that whilst working undercover for the FBI his identity was compromised, and as a result of this his life has now been put in danger simply because he was helping the FBI.
The man, sixty three year old Anthony Martin, said that he was disclosed by the government, and in response he has filed a lawsuit seeking fifty four million dollars in compensation. Martin stated that he was a retired bank robber and a convicted felon.

He said that it was after the September 11th terrorist attacks that he decided to volunteer to work undercover for the FBI, and said that he was placed undercover as a taxi driver in Las Vegas, where his information helped to secure the arrest of at least four people that had entered the country illegally.

Martin stated: “I got a promise that my old name would never be disclosed, and it should not have. They intentionally put me in danger.” He filed the lawsuit on Jan. 29 in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia.
