Scheme to Extort Money from Dock Workers

Scheme to Extort Money from Dock Workers
BY PETER ASELTINE
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM
TRENTON –  A former top official of the International Longshoremen’s Association, a former Newark police officer and a third man pleaded guilty to charges stemming from an investigation into a scheme to extort money from dock workers by demanding “tribute” for better jobs and wages.

The three men were indicted in 2011 in “Operation Terminal,” an investigation by the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice and the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor into the activities of a criminal enterprise that exercised control and corrupt influence over International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) locals operating shipping terminals at the Port of New York and New Jersey. Two other defendants previously pleaded guilty.

Nunzio LaGrasso, 63, of Florham Park – the former secretary-treasurer of ILA Local #1478 and former vice president of the Atlantic Coast District of all ILA locals – pleaded guilty today to a second-degree charge of conspiracy to commit commercial bribery and money laundering before Superior Court Judge Salem Vincent Ahto in Morris County.
