THE BAYTOWN SUN Wednesday, April 3», H T-A Official documents show Deaver's contacts 'WASHINGTON (AP) Former White House aide Michael K. Deaver and employees of his lobbying firm contacted high-level officials on bfchalf of foreign clients, whom tfcey entertained at tony restaurants and traveled abroad te see, government documents show. Among the people Deaver has h'ired are William Sittmann and Pamela Bailey, former White House officials, and Lee V v erstandig, former chief of staff tp first lady Nancy Reagan. • Deaver, 48, an intimate of President Reagan and his wife, is under investigation for allegations he violated conflict-of- interest laws after leaving the White House. ' A glimpse into the operations of Michael K. Deaver and Associates — established last iMay by the onetime White House deputy chief of staff — is reveal- ed in documents filed with the Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The Registration Act requires firms to describe activities on behalf of a foreign client, but they do not specify which employee performed which function and they do not cover domestic clients. Deaver's firm, according to documents filed with the Justice Department for the six months ending March 18, lists as clients the Daewoo Corp., a South Korean steel-maker which allegedly violated U.S. import restrictions; the CBI Sugar Group Inc., a consortium of Latin American and Caribbean sugar producers based in Panama City, Panama; the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia; Mexico's Ministry of Commerce and Industrial Development; and the Interna- tional Cultural Society of Korea. Three clients — the Korea Broadcasting Advertising Corp., and the governments of Singapore and South Korea — terminated their relationships with Deaver in early 1986, the forms showed. The CBI Sugar Group Inc. paid Deaver $300,000 over five months, and the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia paid him $125,000 on Feb. 18. Canada, which signed a $l05,000-a-year agreement, paid more than $50,000 on Nov. 7 and $25,000 six weeks later. In exchange, the clients' saw their causes taken up with high- ranking officials, along with a range of bureaucrats and congressional aides. For CBI, the Deaver company contacted a number of people "relating to implementation of the sugar import provisions of the 1985 Food Security Act," the Deaths and funerals GONZALEZ Services were held at II a.m. U'ednesday /or V'icior A.

Deaver or his representatives talked with Secretary of State George Shultz on Feb. 3; U.S. Trade Representative Clayton W. Yeutter on Feb. 5; and Treasury Secretary James Baker on Feb. 19 and Feb. 27 about CBI. Lobbying on behalf of Canada, the firm made contact with deputy Treasury Secretary Richard Darman, who previously worked with Deaver at the White House and followed Baker to Treasury. Baker was White House chief of staff during Reagan's first term. Yeutter also was contacted on behalf of Canada. On Monday, Deaver joined five Democratic senators and the Office of Government Ethics in asking the Justice Department to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate conflict-of- interest allegations. The department is weighing the request. Only a special prosecutor will be able to clear his name, said SUPPORT Deaver, who insists he has not broken any rules and has followed regulations precisely -since becoming a lobbyist. Reagan has defended his former aide, saying a special prosecutor is unnecessary, and on Tuesday the administration said it opposed a bill introduced by Sen. Strom Thurmond, R- S.C., that would ban forever lobbying by ex-government officials. The Ethics in Government Act of 1978 prohibits former,high- ranking federal officialf from representing anyone before his former agency for one year after leaving the government, lobbying for two years on any matter that was under his jurisdiction during his final year in office or negotiating for work with anyone affected by his job before resigning from that post. The law provides penalties of up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine. ^/r^iv^ «^" ^tiv^ MAY 14-17, 1986 OLD 6AiySESTOfJ 36" and 42" MUGGERS...
