Because of the facts laid bare in a memorandum prepared by the Jewish deputies, the Minister of Interior Schalkanskas, has rescinded the orders expelling the Jewish aliens who were mentioned in this memorandum. The Jewish deputies made a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding the expulsion of Jewish aliens ordered last month by the Citizen Protective Department of the Ministry of Interior. This investigation showed that the majority of expulsions were ordered on the strength of false information supplied to the local authorities.
