Tel Aviv (JTA) — Two of six
Israelis charged by U.S.
authorities with conspiracy to
sell more than $2 billion in
American weapons illegally to
Iran denied in Jerusalem last
week that they were in any way
involved in a clandestine plot.
Yitzhak Lombrozo, a lawyer,
and Yitzhak Hevroni, an or-
dained rabbi who is financial of-
ficer of the Hebron Yeshiva, are
among 17 men of six national-
ities who were arrested or had
warrants issued against them in
New York on April 22.
Also named in the charges by
U.S. Federal prosecutor Ru-
dolph Giuliani were Israel and
Guri Eisenberg, a father and son
who head the Bazalet Interna-
tional Trading Co. (BIT) in
Jerusalem, a firm the U.S. says
was implicated in the alleged
conspiracy. Hevroni is treasurer
of BIT.
Arrested in Bermuda April 22
were a retired Israel Defense
Force general Avraham Baram
and William Northrop, who
holds dual U.S.-Israeli citizen-
ship. They allegedly flew to the
British colony to finalize the
arms deal and are being held on
charges of violating immigra-
tion regulations pending ex-
tradition to the U.S.
Lombrozo, identified as
"Humposa" in reports from the
U.S., is a partner in the
Jerusalem law firm of Hadani
and Lombrozo. He stepped for-
ward to acknowledge that he
had drawn up the incorporation
papers for BIT last February
and insisted it was a legitimate
firm engaged in lawful trade.
According to Lombrozo, he
also drafted the documents for
the arms deal which, he said,
stated explicitly that any
trasaction was conditional on
authorization by the U.S. and
Israeli governments. "It was on-
ly a $400 million deal," Lom-
brozo said, adding that he had
no idea where the $2.5 billion
figure mentioned in the Ameri-
can charges came from.
Lombrozo and Hevroni said
that they have not been notified
by U.S. authorites of any action
pending against them. Hevroni
said he handled BIT'S financial
matters and knew the company
was engaged in arranging some
kind of arms transaction.
However, he stressed, he was
positive it was not illegal. If an
arms deal were about to be con-
sumated, "they (BIT) would
have obtained full prior author-
ization from both the U.S. and
the Israeli governments before
going through with the deal," he
said.
Giuliani, who is the chief U.S.
prosecutor for New York, said
that there is "no suggestion of
involvement by the Israeli
government" in the alleged con-
spiracy. The Foreign Ministry
and Defense Ministry categor-
ically denied that Israel was
involved.
