Crawford
ordered
baek to
prison

MOSCOW (AP) - American
businessman Francis Crawford under-
went five hours of interrogation yester-
day at Lefortovo prison and told repor-
ters afterward he felt like "a pawn in a
political chess game."
Soviet authorities ordered Crawford,
38, to return to the yellow-walled prison
barely a month after he was tem-
porarily freed in a deal involving
release of two alleged Russian spies in
the United States.
THE MOBILE, Ala., native, an em-
ployee of International Harvester Co.,
said he was told to appear tomorrow
morning for more questioning, and in-
dicated it probably would continue
beyond that.
"We've been doing a lot of repeating
of old material that was covered in the
first few days upon my arrest -
nothing new," he said.

Soviet officials reportedly have said
Crawford is being investigated for
alleged currency violations. A convic-
tion on those charges could mean three
to eight years in prison.
"I HAVE nothing to be frightened
about," he told Western reporters out-
side the prison yesterday. "I have
broken no law ... I know inside, my
company knows and the embassy
knows that I'm not guilty of any
violation of any Soviet law."
Under Soviet law, persons arrested
are not given the right to legal counsel
until charges have been formally
drawn up against them.
Crawford said he asked Soviet of-
ficials to let U.S. consular officer
Robert Pringle to be present to advise
him during the sessions.
ASKED ABOUT the atmosphere of
the sessions, he said, "It was pleasant.

There was no hostility"
According to one report, Soviet
authorities have claimed Crawford
illegally purchased 20,000 Soviet rubles
for $8,500. At the current official ex-
change rate, that amount of rubles
would cost $29,400.
"What would you do with 20,000
rubles?" Crawford said. He noted that
high-quality shops for foreigners in
Moscow require Western currency and
that there is little a Westerner would
find to buy in regular stores for large
amounts of rubles.
After his arrest June 12, Crawford
was held for more than two weeks at
Lefortovo in a 9-by-15-foot cell he
shared with a Soviet prisoner. He was
interrogated daily.
On June 27, Crawford was freed tem-
porarily in the recognizance of U.S
Ambassador Malcolm Toon.
