Richard Lundwall.. a former finance executive with the oil company, was indicted in White Plains, New York.. charged with obstruction of justice.
According to federal authorities, Lundwall tampered with key documents at the center of the race discrimination case settled last week for 176 million dollars.
But Lundwall was the man who turned the tapes over to the plaintiffs in that case. CHRISTOPHER RILEY, LUNDWALL'S ATTORNEY: I DO THINK IT'S IRONIC THAT THE MAN WHO IS CHARGED WITH A CRIME, IS THE ONE WHO ACTUALLY COOPERATED WITH POLICE.
In a newly released court document, Lundwall apparently admitted that he.. and other Texaco executives shredded portions of key evidence, requested by the plaintiffs.
He also told an FBI agent that some comments had been deleted from tape transcripts.
Even though he turned over the tapes.. his attorney says Lundwall's indictment doesn't exactly encourage others to come forward in the case that has electrified the giant oil company. CHRISTOPHER RILEY: THIS DOES NOT BODE WELL FOR THE WHISTLEBLOWERS, Liz Mullen, CBS News, New York.))
