Hejjas Confesses

Download PDF for this date

Commandant Ivan Hejjas has appeared at Police headquarters here and has made a confession that he is the leader of the irregular Alfoeld Brigade. He has supplied to the authorities all details concerning the composition of the Brigade, and the location of its arms and munitions.

The Hungarian official Telegraphic Bureau circulates a statement by the MHinister for the Interior, M. Ivan Rakowsky, declaring that the whole story of the intended coup against the Government, for which the Chongrad bomb was to have been the signal, is to be traced back to the fantastic ideas of a group of politically undeveloped and irresponsible persons resident in Chongrad and its vicinity.

Liberal political circles here regard the statement merely as an attempt to restore confidence in Hungary abroad so as not to jeopardize the chances of the Hungarian Loan now being negotiated in London.
