Ex-Sununu aide in ethics review over BCCI probe

October 31, 1991|By New York Times News Service

WASHINGTON -- Justice Department officials said yesterday that they would await a White House ethics review before deciding whether to open a criminal investigation of a former administration aide who had acted as a representative of a primary figure in criminal inquiries into the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.

On Tuesday Edward M. Rogers Jr., the former aide to White House Chief of Staff John H. Sununu, canceled a $600,000 contract to represent Sheik Kamal Adham, former head of Saudi Arabian intelligence.

C. Boyden Gray, the White House counsel, has opened an internal inquiry to determine whether Mr. Rogers violated ethics laws, which prohibit him from lobbying his former colleagues for a year after leaving the government.

Mr. Rogers resigned his White House post in August.
