(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Anti-Semitic organizations, representatives of which participated in the Anti-Semitic Congress from five East and South European countries, which took place recently in Budapest, are involved in the counterfeiting plot, according to a surprising report which appeared today in the Hungarian paper “Mainop.”

According to this report the counterfeiting conspiracy was only one detail of a larger plot. Members of the Awakening Magyars, one of the Fascisti organizations which is involved in the plot, attacked Jewish passersby last night on the streets of Budapest and assaulted Jewish guests in Budapest cafes.

The State Attorney ordered the arrest of Mr. Bartha, the cabinet chief of Regent Horthy, Horthy’s son-in-law, Zoltan Fay, Deputy Julius Goemboes, Bishop Zodravec, member of the Fascisti organization, as well as Deputies Telekys, Perenyi and Pronay.
