fund-raiser at a Buddhist temple in Hacienda Heights, California in

April 1996. Two nuns who live at the temple testified about their

knowledge of the event and their destruction of documents relating to

it after press report came out about in October 1996. The other nun,

Man Ya, who lives at a temple in Texas, talked about her contribution

of $5,000 to the Democratic National Committee for which the temple
