(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The Lemberg police commissioner, Lukomski, who instituted the proceedings against Stanislaw Steiger, was dismissed from his post by an order issued yesterday by the Polish Minister of the Interior.

It was brought out by many witnesses in the Steiger trial that Lukomski did not conduct the investigation impartially and failed to conduct any investigation in other directions.
