Horthy, Aware of Murder Plan Permitted Its Occurrence

That Admiral Horthy, Regent of Hunary, knew beforehand of the plan to murder the Socialist editor. Semogyi Baco, and permitted it to take place, is the revelation made by Venitzky, the former Minister of the Interior in Hungary. Venitzky’s statement was reprinted in the “Wiener Abend” from the Hungarian newspaper, “Azujsag.”
