[Excerpt] This is the eleventh semiannual report of the Department of Labor's Office of Inspector General. The accomplishments cited in this report continue to demonstrate that there are serious fraud and management problems affecting programs and resources administered by or through the Department of Labor (DOL) and that there are significant instances of organized crime and labor racketeering in the labor management field. A particularly noteworthy accomplishment was the recent landmark court decision rendered in February 1984, in Newark, New Jersey, which removed officers of an International Brotherhood of Teamsters local union from their posts for corrupt activities. This action resulted from the use of the civil provisions of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations statute. Also during this reporting period, our investigative efforts have resulted in 195 indictments and 174 convictions, the issuance of 645 audit reports, and the resolution of $125.2 million from prior audit work.
