JASA Employees Implicate City Councilman In Witness Tampering
Article by Caleb Whymark
Several individuals associated with the Jewish Association for Services for the Aged in Manhattan have come forward
and stated that false evidence presented to the court in the guardianship case of Mircea Fersedy is due to the
influence of New York City Councilman Peter F. Valone, Jr.
Two JASA workers indicated Vallone used his official position on the City Council to influence testimony against
Mr. Fersedy in a guardianship matter. One stated that the non-profit organization would lose funding. The other individual
confirmed Vallones influence. A third individaul stated twice, "This should be dismissed." Further she confirmed that,
"There is not a blur of mental illness."
JASA was advised of the employee statements late last week and at this point has not made a public statement concerning the matter.
