Re Secret Funds Investigation Complaint Registered by Defense Counsel
Gives an in depth explanation of the complaint that was formally filed by Mr. J. N. Freeman of the Defense Counsel. Freeman charged that the Prosecution's "interrogation amounted to tampering with one of the defense witnesses." Freeman was interviewed and a report was produced by Mr. Waldorf and Mr. Lambert. Freeman's statements and the interaction between the defense and prosecution are clearly described regarding this matter. After including excerpts from the interrogations, Edwards concludes with "All the above quoted exceprts of the transcript were brought to the attention of Mr. Freeman. In the light thereof I can not believe that he can any longer etnertain an honest doubt as to our ethics in the conduct of the interrogation. Moreover, in view of all the facts and circumstances it seems to me that he is left with absolutely no basis for complaint. In the last analysis, I believe that any further inquiry which he may make with respect to this matter will be solely in the interest of ascertaining, if possible, what action if any IPS proposes to take against General MATSUMURA."
