Ivan Rakowsky, Minister of the Interior, and the Minister of Justice have tendered their resignations today as a result of the verdict

passed by the court at Szolnok in the trial of seven anti-Semitic bomb conspirators. The seven conspirators, Georg Pirosko, Ladislaws Simko, Nicholas Polcaenyi, Andor Fucloep, Johann Pirosko, Johann Saghy and Rochas Saghy, were accused of participating in a bomb conspiracy, one detail of which was the throwing of the bomb at a Jewish charity ball in Scongrad on December 26, 1923, killing three Jews and wounding many others. The resigning Rakowsky declared that under such judicial system, no public security is possible.
