  • Description

    IN THE WAKE OF NEW YORK CITY MAYOR JOHN LINDSAY'S ANNOUNCEMENT HE WOULD NOT RUN FOR THE OFFICER AGAIN, SEE SPECIAL STATE INVESTIGATIONS COMMISSIONER MAURICE NADJARI ANNOUNCED THE INDICTMENT OF THREE TOP LINDSAY ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS. THEY WERE NORMAN LEVY WHO IS PRESIDENT OF THE CITY TAX COMMISSION, JOHN FRATIANNI WHO IS THE DEPUTY COMMISSIONER OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PURCHASE, AND STANLEY ISRAEL WHO IS THE CHIEF ADMINISTRATOR OF THE BROOKLYN PARKING VIOLATIONS BUREAU. ALL THREE WERE ARRAIGNED ON CHARGED ON FIXING PARKING TICKETS FOR POLITICAL FIGURES. NADJARI SAID THE GRAND JURY THAT REPORTED TO HIM LABELLED A PREVIOUS CITY INVESTIGATION INADEQUATE AND HE ADDED THAT ONE PROBLEM WAS THAT THE CITY INVESTIGATION WAS PASSED ON THE MAYOR'S OFFICER WHICH THEN COULD CHOOSE TO TAKE ACTION OR CHOOSE NOT TO. NADJARI SAID THIS WAS A PERFECTLY LEGAL WAY TO SQUELCH AN INVESTIGATION. NADJARI SAID HE WASN'T PASSING JUDGEMENT ON THE MAYOR BUT MERELY STATING THE FACTS. NADJAIEEE NADJARI'S OFFICE WAS SET UPRECENTLY BY STATE GOVERNOR NELSON ROCKEFELLER OVER CITY PROTESTS. ROCKEFELLER AND LINDSAY HAVE BEEN BITTER POLITICAL FOES FOR YEARS.
