Recorder of Steiger Investigations Brought to Trial for Forging Documents

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Pan Piotrowski, who kept the record of the investigating authorities in the Steiger trial, will have to explain the omissions and changes in the record, before a disciplinary court.

The Lemberg authorities received instructions from the central government to begin disciplinary proceedings against Piotrowski, who was compromised during the proceedings of the Steiger trial by the testimony of witnesses. It was brought out then that Piotrowski changed the testimony of one of the witnesses at the investigation, with a view to making the court believe that Steiger was a Communist. It was shown that he substituted the word Communist for “Kominuzajancy,” Polish for one who is inclined toward Communism.
