    TRANSCRIPT (SEQ 4): LANE: " BUT SINCE THE FBI, THE WARREN COMMISSION, THE CIA, THE SECRET SERVICE. TO SAY NOTHING OF THE DALLAS POLICE AND THE DALLAS SHERIFF'S OFFICES HAVE DONE LITTLE TO INVESTIGATE AND MUCH TO PREVENT A REAL INVESTIGATION, I BELIEVE THAT MR. GARRISON IS ENTIRELY JUSTIFIED IN MAINTAINING CONTROL OF THE INQUIRY AND IN REFUSING TO SHARE HIS INFORMATION WITH THE VERY FORCES WHICH HAVE FALSIFIED THE RECORD."

    Background: INVESTIGATIONS ARE STILL CONTINUING IN NEW ORLEANS, INTO DISTRICT ATTORNEY JIM GARRISON'S CLAIMS THAT PRESIDENT KENNEDY WAS ASSASSINATED BY A GROUP OF PLOTTERS. GARRISON HAS PROMISED ARRESTS OF PEOPLE CONNECTED WITH THE PLOT AND HAS REFUSED TO DISCLOSE HIS INFORMATION TO US GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.

    YESTERDAY (MONDAY) IN ROME, LAWYER MARK LANE, A LEADING CRITIC OF THE WARREN REPORT WHICH SAID THAT KENNEDY'S ASSASSIN LEE OSWALD ACTED ALONE, SUPPORTED GARRISON'S REFUSAL TO HAND OVER INFORMATION TO THE US GOVERNMENT.

    LANE'S THEORIES ON THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION -- CONTAINED IN HIS BOOK "RUSH TO JUDGEMENT" -- ARE IN CONFLICT WITH THE CONCLUSIONS OF THE WARREN REPORT.

    DISTRICT ATTORNEY GARRISON ALSO CLAIMS THAT OSWALD WAS IN THE PAY OF PRO-CASTRO CUBANS WHO PLOTTED THE KILLING OF KENNEDY IN DALLAS IN 1963. HE SAYS HE WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE ARRESTS OF PEOPLE CONNECTED WITH THE PLOT.

    COMMENTING ON CARRISON'S REFUSAL TO HAND OVER HIS INFORMATION TO THE FBI AND OTHER GOVERNMENT AGENCIES, LANE SAID:
