Williams told the Senate today the Agency for International Development is trying to cover up a bribery scandal involving four of its ranking officials in Bel gium. The Delaware Republican said the four officials he did not name had been permitted to resign voluntarily despite charges they had received cash or payments in goods or services from a con tractor. Williams said J. & M. Adriaens- sens, N. V. Hoboken, Belgium, was the contractor who received a “liberalized” contract of more than $2 million for refurbishing surplus U. S. goods for foreign aid programs. He said the Department of Justice is filing a $260,000 claim against the company but the government had “dallied while some of the records have become lost . . .” Williams said he was told Tues day the case files now are classi fied for “limited official use,” thereby prohibiting congressional inspection. The classification, he said, is a cover-up. “This is not going to be brushed under the rug,” he said. “Nor are they going to get away with classifying these files until after the election.” International News COMOX, B.
