Italian financier convicted
NEW YORK-Italian financier Michele Sindona was convicted
yesterday of looting the Franklin National Bank of $45 million, causing it to
collapse in the biggest bank failure in U.S. history.
Sindona, the 13th former Franklin official convicted in connection with
the bankruptcy of the Long Island-based bank, was found guilty on 65
charges of bank fraud conspiracy, perjury, wire fraud, mail fraud, and
making false statements. He was acquitted on one charge of bribing a
former high-ranking Franklin National bank officer.
Sindona is wanted in Italy on charges that he illegally removed $225
million from two banks he owned in Milan causing them to go bankrupt prior
to the Franklin National collapse.
Committee approves bills that
would protect suing employes
LANSING-The House Labor Committee yesterday approved a pair of
bills protecting employees who sue their bosses for breaking the law.
Under the bills, both of which passed on 12-0 votes, a worker who is
fired could sue his or her boss for reinstatement, back wages and benefits,
court costs or a combination of all three. Burden of proof, however, rests on
Warren Hutchinson, head of the Department of Natural Resources
criminal investigative unit, said much of the information gained by his
department comes from informants. "Lots of informants have lost-their
jobs because they've reported on their employers," he said. "We wouldn't
get a lot of our information except for them."
A representative of the state Chamber of Commerce spoke against the
bills, saying that if an employer fired a worker for reporting a law violation,
the employee could sue his boss under extortion laws.
TEL AVIV, Israel-Palestinian guerrillas attacked four Israeli buses in
the occupied West Bank of the Jordan River yesterday as tension mounted
over Israel's decision to build two schools in the Arab city of Hebron.
An Israeli military spokesperson said three 'masked Arab guerrillas
blocked a road near the village of Kfar Aboud, 15 miles east of Tel Aviv, and'
ordered Arab drivers out of their vehicles, which were on the way to pick up
Arab workers for jobs inside Israel.
The three threw firebombs in one of the buses, setting it ablaze, and
smashed windows of the three other buses but did not set them on fire, the
The Palestine Liberation Organization claimed responsibility for the
attack, in which no injures were reported.

WASHINGTON-Surges in both the volume and the price of imported
crude oil and oil products helped push the nation's trade deficit last month to
a record $5.6 billion, the Commerce Department reported yesterday.
David Lund, a senior economist with the Commerce Department,
attributed much of the growth of the deficit to "one of the largest monthly
increases ever in the price of imported oil," and said that the deficit also was
influenced by a jump inforeign car imports and a drop in U.S. exports of
Rig capsizes near Norway
OSLO, Norway-A floating "hotel" platform with more than 200 North

Authorities said early this morning that 88 persons had been rescued by
British and Norwegian helicopters, ships, and divers who were fighting
winds of up to 80 m.p.h. They said many were injured or dead. Estimates of
the number on board ranged from 208 to 218 persons. Most were said to be

LANSING-The state House, by a single vote, rejected a controvprial
resolution yesterday freeing up $950,000 for a preliminary study on a Detroit
Fifty-five votes were needed for passage of the measure, which was
rejected by a vote of 54-41, following 31/2 hours of debate. A move to
reconsider the vote was pending, however.
Under the plan, the state would have paid $950,000 toward preliminary
engineering work on a 4.6 mile subway running from downtown Detroit nort
to the city's "New Center" area.
An aerial train system would have brought the route through Highland
Park and then to the northern suburb of Royal Oak by surface rail.
