Lutheran General Hospital pathologist takes stand at Tony Rezko trial
Dr. Imad Alamanseer takes the stand this afternoon in Tony Rezko's trial and says he got a post on
a state board through Rezko. Before his appointment, Alamanseer, who heads Pathology at Advocate Lutheran General in Park Ridge, gave Rezko a $500,000 loan to invest in one of his companies.
Alamanseer said he was told by board chairman Thomas Beck to watch Stuart Levine’s votes during planning board session then vote the same way because "That's how Tony would want it."
When Alamanseer relayed that plan with Rezko: “He laughed about it and changed the subject.”
Thomas Beck's questioning ended this morning with the government passing on redirect.
