An attorney representing West New York Mayor Felix Roque is calling the state Attorney General’s Office’s indictment levied against the mayor earlier today “ridiculously false charges.”

â€œMayor Roque is innocent of the charges and looks forward to once again clearing his name from what are ridiculously false charges,” Christopher D. Adams, of the Holmdel law firm Adams, Buchan & Palo, LLC, said in a statement.
â€œThe Stateâ€™s case rests entirely on the word of a convicted liar and cheat, who the Attorney Generalâ€™s Office has incentivized to make more lies in exchange for a reduced sentence.â€
â€œI wouldnâ€™t trust Rehan Zuberi if he told me his name â€“ in fact, the State knows that he has lied about that in the past too.”
Roque is accused of accepting $250,000 in cash bribes and other kickbacks in exchange for referring patients to a specific medical imaging company.
