Justice Dept. honors
plea bargain with spy
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice
Department said Monday it will keep
in place the plea bargaining agreement
involving admitted spy John Walker
Jr., despite recent polygraph test results
which suggest the Navy veteran is
lying about some matters.
The U.S. attorney in San Francisco,
meanwhile, said any doubts over
Walker's truthfulness won't
jeopardize the conviction of Jerry
Alfred Whitworth, the former Navy
communications specialist who was
part of the Walker network.
BASED ON lie detector
examinations, federal law
enforcement and intelligence officials
are questioning whether Walker
answered accurately when asked about
the size and origins of the spy ring, said
federal law enforcement officials,
speaking on condition that they not be
identified. The Walker operation
supplied the Soviet Union with
information which could be used to
break coded messages of the U.S.
The Justice Department will not
shelve the plea bargaining agreement,
said John Russell, a spokesman for the
department's criminal division.
"OUR procedures on this have been
very carefully thought out," said
Russell. "We're not going back on the

Whitworth is the former Navy
communications specialist who met
Walker two to four times a year from
1976 to 1985, supplying him with film of
the material needed to break the Navy's
coded messages. He was sentenced last
month to 365 years in prison for
espionage. Walker was a government
witness at Whitworth's trial.

Moscow paper makes more
accusations against Daniloff
MOSCOW--- The newspaper Izvestia on Monday accused
Nicholas Daniloff of using a journalist's cover to ferret out military
secrets about Afghanistan and claimed the American reporter
worked with an alleged CIA agent in Moscow.
The government newspaper said the imprisoned correspondent
for U.S. News & World Report was charged by a military prosecutor
with espionage under a law that imposes penalties ranging from
seven years in prison to death.
The article elaborated on accusations already made against
Daniloff and expanded the charges against the reporter beyond the
scope of the original claim that he received secret documents during
what was described as a secret meeting with a Soviet in a Moscow
TV producer denies charges
DETROIT - A television producer was just doing his job when
he promised to protect the anonymity of teen-aged gang members,
and jailing him for withholding videotapes from a grand jury
would set a dangerous precedent, his lawyer said Monday.
"What is at stake here is simply more than just a reporter," said
Henry Saad, attorney for Bradley Stone. "The free flow of
information in the country and this state in particular is at stake."
Wayne County Circuit Judge William Giovan cited Stone for
comtempt of court in March and ordered the producer for Defroit's
WJBK-TV to jail if he refused to turn over the tapes to the grand jury
investigating the death of a Michigan State Police trooper.
U.S. District Judge Richard F. Suhrheinrich said he would rule
Tuesday on whether to stay the contempt citation. A hearing has
been scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday before Giovan to determine
whether Stone would be jailed.
Yugoslav captain leaves U.S.
DETROIT- The United States cannot request extradition of a
Yugoslavian freighter captain charged in the death of two Lake
Michigan fishermen, a federal spokesman said yesterday.
Seman Franko, who was heading back to Yugoslavia yesterday
after being served warrants charging two counts of negligent
homicide, cannot be extradited under a 1901 treaty between the
United States and Serbia, said a Department of State spokesman who
Serbia became a republic of Yugoslavia in 1945.
Franko was handed the warrants Sunday morning by
Charlevoix County Sheriff George Lasater while the 620-foot
freighter, the Jablanica, was docked at the Soo Locks in Sault Ste.
Franko posted $4,000 bond and left for Yugoslavia, Lasater said.
The Jablanica struck or swamped a fishing boat with three men
aboard Aug. 20 near Whiskey Island, about 45 miles northwest of
Charlevoix. The accident sank the 40-foot Razel Brothers fishing
tug. Two crewmen drowned; a third body has been found but not
