MASTER-SAAO  robotic telescope (2x4 square 
degrees twin telescope,  was pointing 
to the  Swift-BAT error box (Sakamoto et al., GCN 19681) during Fermi-GBM 
alert inspection   1727 sec after FERMI GBM notice time (Jenke, GCN 
19676) and before 9709 sec FERMI LAT notice time and 1750 sec after trigger
time at  2016-07-09 20:18:14 UT. On our 180s exposure  set we  not found OT
within Swift-BAT (Sakamoto et al., GCN 19681) brighter then 19.6.
