Peres is faced with mounting
demands for an official investiga-
tion by many Labor Party minis-
ters and their political allies in
the unity coalition government,
and a majority of Labor's Knesset
faction. This is fiercely opposed by
the Likud ministers who have ac-
cused Labor of trying to precipi-
tate a coalition crisis to bring
down the government before
Likud leader Yitzhak Shamir as-
sumes office as Prime Minister
next October, under terms of the
coalition's rotation of power
agreement.
There are five no - confidence
motions pending against the gov-
ernment over the affair from op-
position factions. They are ex-
pected to be easily defeated. But
the issue of an investigation may
hinge on i a decision of the Sup-
reme Court.
A panel of three justices is pre-
sently hearing a series of appeals
to overturn the pardon granted by
President Chaim Herzog last
Wednesday to Shalom and three
of his top aides in Shin Bet for any
offenses they may have commit-
ted in connection with the deaths
of the prisoners in custody.
Peres, Shalom, Justice Minister
Yitzhak Modai, Police Minister
Haim Barley and Attorney Gen-
eral Yosef Harish are all named
as respondents. Harish is arguing
their case.
The three justices — Supreme
Court President Meir Shamgar,
Miriam Ben-Porat and Aharon
Barak — ruled Monday that
President Herzog's name be re-
moved from the list of respondents
on grounds that he acted within
his constitutional authority when
he granted the pardons. But this
does not mean the pardons cannot
be challenged.
The appeals were filed by the
Citizens Rights Movement
(CRM), a political party in the
Knesset, and by several groups of
private attorneys.
The Court was told that when
Shin Bet chief Shalom applied for
a Presidential pardon last week,
he stated all his actions in the cast

at hand had been undertaken
"with authority and permission."
One of the main objectives of
those seeking an investigation is
to establish political responsibil-
ity for the illegal killing of pris-
oners. The head of Shin Bet is re-
sponsible solely to the Prime
Minister and Shamir was Prime
Minister at the time of the inci-
dent. Peres took office several
months later. Both men are al-
leged to have known of the pur-
ported coverup by Shalom.
Peres told the Knesset, "I do not
accuse any person in the political
echelon," an apparent reference to
Shamir. "But (the affair) must be
investigated so as to leave no
doubt," he added. "I don't want to
go around trailing a tail of ques-
tionmarks. I have always been
consistent to principles. I have
never sought an inquiry of the op-
erational level, but have defended
that level and I have not opposed
an inquiry of the political eche-
lon," Peres said.
He said he could not report to
the house any definitive position
of the government because the
Cabinet has not yet taken a posi-
tion. He said the demand for a
commission of inquiry was sub-
mitted by "a group of ministers"
and there would be debate and a
decision on it.
The Likud Knesset faction held
caucus before the plenary debate
began. Speaker after speaker
flayed Peres and the Labor Party
for "whipping up" the Shin Bet
affair as a way to thwart the rota-
tion of power. Shamir himself
levelled the same charge. He told
reporters Monday that it was
"clear as daylight" that the at-
tacks by Labor on the Presidential
pardon were aimed at bringing
down the government.
Political observers said Monday
night, that despite the bristling
hostility between the two major
coalition partners, behind7 the-
scenes efforts were being made to
find an acceptable way out of the
controversy over a probe of the
Shin Bet affair.

ADL Board Re-elects
Lockman President

Stuart M. Lockman, a Detroit
attorney, was unanimously
reelected President of the Michi-
gan Regional Advisory Board of
the Anti-Defamation League of
B'nai B'rith, at that group's an-
nual meeting last week in South-
field. Lockman, a member of the
ADL's national board, serves on
the national ADL Law Commit-
tee, and its Community Service
Committee, as well as being
active locally.
Elected or reelected as vice
presidents of the Michigan group
were: Robert J. Gordon, Linda
Soberman, Deena Lockman,
David Wallace, Judy Nolish,
Laurence A. Miller, and George
Nyman. Gordon also was recently
elected as a member of ADL's na-
tional board. Betty Goodman of
Lansing was re-elected vice
president for outstate activities.

Norman Beitner was elected sec-
retary of the group, and Kenneth
E. Konop was re-elected trea-
surer.
A special award was presented
to Flint Journal reporter Dan
Shriner, in appreciation of his
"outstanding activities on behalf
of America's Democratic Tradi-
tions." In 1979, Shriner pene-
trated and exposed hate group op-
erations in Michigan, resulting in
the arrest and conviction of sev-
eral members, for illegal traffick-
ing in weapons. Since then, he has
exposed various other similar ac-
tivities, including several of the
recent national hate-group as-
semblies at the farm of Robert
Miles, former Grand Dragon of
the Michigan Ku Klux Klan, lo-
cated outside of Howell, Mich.
Lockman, in accepting reelec-
tion, reviewed the group's past
