Dominick E. Bartone closely associated with the activities of Cleveland racketeer John Nardi was convicted on income tax evasion charges. Authorities charged that Bartone under reported his taxable income in 1959 by $195,000 and nearly $10,000 in 1961. Sentenced to a 3 year term ‘for the first offense,’ to run concurrently with an 18 month sentence on the second charge, prosecutors acknowledged the complicated nature of the dealings between Bartone and individuals described as agents who acted on his behalf in a ‘complicated web of financial dealings with representatives of the Dominican Republic.

Bartone was engaged in selling munitions and airplane parts to the Dominican Republic through a corporate shell company organized in Panama as Servicios Internacionales, S.A. Wholly owned by Bartone, Serviciios Internacionales, S.A., received and expended through bank accounts held in the companies name, the entire $202,693.25 the government contended should have been reported by Bartone in 1959 as well as the $19,190.63 it contended he should have reported for business conducted in 1961 as well.

As an example of the types of transactions involved, the government prosecutor listed Bartone’s purchase of a $150,000 cashier’s check in Miami on July 23, 1959 which was used to open a checking account at the Royal Bank of Canada in the name of Servicios Internacionales in August 1959. It was alleged the source of funds was a weapons transaction brokered by Bartone on behalf of Mr. Emanuel Perez Sosa, a member of the Dominican consulate in Miami. The weapons secured from North Carolina for $12,000 was sold to Perez Sosa for $307,000.

The 1961 charge arose out of an attempt by Bartone to purchase a bankrupt Canadian Corporation, Niagra Crushed Stone using a $25,000 personal loan secured from Robert Meissner. Bartone reportedly undertook the procurement of weapons for the formation of an anti-Castro Government following a meeting held between Dr. Emilio Nunez Portuando, former Cuban Ambassador to the United Nations, and Generalismo Rafael Trujillo and General Jose Pedroza held in the Dominican in 1959.

Others tied to Bartone were William Alex Morgan, a Cuban Army Major born in Cleveland, Ohio and a resident for a time in Toledo. Also Jack A. Rile aka Thomas Charles Vienna, who was listed by the LAPD as #28285. Morgan reportedly met with a member of the Dominican consol and in the presence of Bartone received $200,000 for anti-Castro activities in Cuba. Among those associated with Bartone’s weapons procurement activies were Julio Laurent, former head of Cuban Intelligence under Batista who was living in Miami, Florida. Bartone was indicted June 4, 1959 in the Southern District of Florida along with

Bartone maintained close ties with Babe Tricaro an influential Teamsters agent with ties to Eddie Debartolo.
Declassified documents also indicate Carmen Milano may have served as an FBI (PCI) as early as 1959.

A report in the FBI file of Bartone contains the following entry;
PCI Carmen Milano, young Cleveland attorney who is the son of Tony Milano, former well known Cleveland rackeer and nephew of Frank Milano, Los Angeles Office top hoodlum.

Milano was the attorney of record for Bartone. Bartone attempted to secure a $35,000 loan from Edward J. De Bartolo, President of De Bartolo Companies, Youngstown, Ohio for the purchase of Niagra Crushed Stone Company owned by his partner Al Naiman. Bartone promised that in return De Bartolo would be given special pricing on stone imported from the Canadian quarry for use on De Bartolo construction projects. In exchange for the loan, De Bartolo received a 90-day note signed by Bartone identifying him as President of Servicios Internacionales. When the note expired and efforts by De Bartolo to collect the debt failed, he turned the matter of collection over to his attorney Carmen Milano.

Bartone and Naiman received another loan arranged through Louis ‘Babe’ Triscaro from the Public Bank in Detroit. The contact on this loan was Joseph Verhelle. In addition to the Canadian quarry Naiman was also President of Akros Dynamics to Florida and Havana. Akros Dynamics in a deal desbribed by Triscaro had purchased surplus Air Force Globemaster planes and was attempting to sell them to anti-Castro agents.
