Tape recorders ruled out in city hall inquiry EDMONTON (CP) City police investigating city hall affairs decided to rule out the use of hidden tape recorders, a judicial inquiry into alleged wrongdoing by members of city council was told Wednesday. Insp. A. W. R. Lefeuvre, the city police officer who con- ducted the initial investigation, said it was decided the use of such techni- ques as tape recorders would not have been applicable un- der the circumstances of this investigation. It was the inspector's se- cond day of testimony before the inquiry, set up following disclosure by Aid. Alex Fallow of an alleged "gift" from land developer Raphael Ghermezian. The Ghermezian brothers have subsequently testified that it was Aid. Fallow who demanded the money, but that he was turned down. W. A. McGillivray, the Ghermezian's lawyer, suggested that if Raphael Ghermezian was interested in "buying" Aid. Fallow, it would have been possible to arrange a meeting between the two men which could have been monitored by the police. Insp. Lefeuvre replied that the allegations made by Aid. Fallow involved incidents which had already occurred. Mr. McGillivray asked the inspector if he had suggested to Aid. Fallow that another meeting be arranged with Mr. Ghermezian to "line him up." "It would have occured to me under different circum- stances but not under Insp. Lefeuvre testified. DENIED COMPLETELY In later testimony Wednesday, Aid. Una Evans denied completely that she had requested any political campaign contribution from the Ghermezian brothers. Mrs. Evans said statements made earlier in the inquiry by Eskandar Ghermezian about her requesting a contribution were "not correct." Mr. Ghermezian told the in- quiry that Mrs. Evans had asked for a "substantial donation" to her federal cam- paign. The alderman said she met with the three Ghermezian brothers in late 1972 to discuss the upcoming Ghermezian application for rezoning of property in the Oickensfield area of Edmonton. After the meeting, one of the Ghermezians indicated they would like to help her campaign, she said. Mrs. Evans was a Liberal can- didate in the 1972 federal elec- tion. However, Mrs. Evans said she told them they were there to discuss the rezoning proposal. "1 was brisk with them and the campaign was not dis- cussed" she said.
