Meese charged with ethics violations
From Associated Press reports
WASHINGTON The Justice
Department concluded Tuesday that
former Attorney General Edwin
Meese violated federal ethics stand
ards five times in six years and that
his relationship with E. Robert
Wallach "dictated government
action" in major cases.
Meese's assistance to scandal
plagued Wedtech Corp. and his
efforts on behalf of a proposed
Mideast oil pipeline involved "three
instances in which friendship"
between him and Wallach caused
federal actions, said the report by the
department's Office of Professional
Wallach, who collected $1.3 mil
lion from Wedtech from 1982 to 1986,
is awaiting trial in New York on
racketeering and other charges. He
is accused of peddling his Meese
"As a direct result of the prefer
ential, improper efforts of Meese and
his staff, the Army" awarded a $32
million engine-building contract to
Wedtech in 1982 while Meese was
counselor to President Reagan, said
the ethics report on Meese.
Meese also violated ethics require
ments, the report said, by failing to
report a stock sale on his 1985 federal
tax return and by participating in a
Justice Department decision favoring
the regional Bell telephone companies
in which he held $14,000 in stock at
If Meese were still attorney general,
"we would recommend (to the next
ranking department official) that the
president take disciplinary action,"
the report concluded.
A department statement said no
further action against Meese is
warranted because he is no longer a
Independent counsel James
McKay decided last summer not to
prosecute Meese, although McKay
concluded Meese had probably twice
violated conflict-of-interest laws in
connection with his Bell holdings and
had violated tax laws in connection
with failing to report the stock sales.
McKay's report "far from vindi
cates Mr. Meese," the new Justice
Department report said. "It details
conduct which should not be toler
ated of any government employee,
especially not the attorney general of
the United States."
Attorney General Dick Thorn
burgh disagreed with one aspect of
the report, saying Meese's failure to
dispose of his financial interest in the
regional Bell companies resulted from
a failure to get adequate legal advice
rather than from intent to violate
At the White House, spokesman
Marlin Fitzwater said President
Reagan believes "this report was
unnecessary, partly because Meese
has not been in the office for some
time and partly because it was
Fitzwater said Reagan believes his
longtime friend did nothing wrong.
Riots follow shooting incident in Miami
From Associated Press reports
MIAMI Schools closed and
police cordoned off a 130-block area
Tuesday, warning motorists they
could not be protected, following a
night of rioting sparked by the fatal
shooting of an unarmed black motor
cyclist by a white policeman.
As city leaders sought to restore
calm in the predominantly black
Overtown neighborhood, a white
man in a luxury car reportedly fired
into a crowd of blacks in the area
Tuesday afternoon, wounding one
person before driving away.
"All I know is that one person was
hit in the side," police spokesman
Angelo Bitsis said, adding that the
unidentified victim was hospitalized
in fair condition.
The FBI announced it would open
an investigation into Monday night's
shooting to determine whether there
were civil rights violations, Miami
bureau spokesman George Kiszynski
"I can't tell you how long it will
take, but it will be an extensive and
thorough investigation and it will be
done as promptly as possible,"
Mayor Xavier Suarez, who was
one of the targets of rock and bottle
throwing Monday night, spent Tues
day meeting with black leaders and
residents of Overtown, a neighbor
hood of rundown, low-slung apart
ment buildings and trash-strewn
vacant lots, just north of downtown
"People are angry; people want a
full explanation of what happened,"
said Suarez, who also expressed
particular concern about the damage
to Miami's image less than a week
before the city hosts the Super Bowl.
At least two buildings and three
cars were burned in the rioting, which
broke out about two hours after a
white police officer shot and killed
a black motorcyclist being chased for
a traffic infraction. No damage
estimates were available.
Authorities said seven civilians and
three of the 280 police officers called
to the scene were injured.
The disturbance recalled the
bloody 1980 riot in adjacent Liberty
City that also was linked to the death
of a black motorcyclist at the hands
of white officers. A similar distur
bance broke out in 1982 when a black
man was shot to death only a few
blocks from where the latest incident
On Monday, Clement Lloyd, 23,
died following a police chase that
started just after 6 p.m.
Bitsis said Lloyd and a passenger
on his motorcycle sped past a police
officer, who gave chase. Then the
motorcycle headed down a street
where another officer, William
Luzano, was taking a report from a
"He heard the radio transmission
and saw the motorcycle coming in his
direction," Bitsis said. "As the
motorcycle either approached him or
went by him, he fired his shot."
Israeli soldiers object to
treatment of Palestinians
From Associated Press reports
NABLUS, Occupied West
Bank Angry Israeli soldiers told
Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir
on Tuesday that they were being
robbed of their values because they
had been forced to mistreat
One after another, eight reser
vists rose to confront Shamir as
he toured Nablus and visited an
army tent camp outside the West
Bank's largest city, which has
120,000 Arab residents.
The soldiers, in their late 20s
and early 30s, said they had beaten
innocent people to instill fear in
them and enforce order. Several
said they were ashamed of their
actions and had difficulty facing
friends and loved ones when they
"The basic values we grew up
on changed whether we like it or
not during our service here. Every
day children are being hurt," said
Capt. Ronnie Carmelli.
