Surveillance Reports Dated April 30 and May 1, 1936

On the twin subjects of keeping tabs and behind-the-scenes intrigue, it appears that Moses Polakoff – Luciano’s long-time attorney and Levy’s trial co-counsel – began keeping tabs, as best he could, on those prosecution witnesses who’d agreed to cooperate with Dewey and who’d consequently been released from custody to live in hotels under police guard.  It was from this surveillance that Levy and Polakoff first suspected that undue witness influence might be afoot, all as later corroborated by, among other sources, the Horvath/Kelly affidavit.
