Retired Maj. Gen. Richard V. Secord, a principal middleman in the Iran- contra affair, told a federal judge Monday that giving Senate investigators access to his foreign bank accounts would violate both the Constitution and a U.S.-Swiss treaty. The Senate select committee's request that he sign a waiver freeing the documents is a "plain and simple violation of Mr. Secord's rights under the First and Fifth amendments to the Constitution," his lawyer, Thomas Green, said.
