(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Rumors have been spread here that the Ukranians in Paris are forming a committee to take civil action against Schwartzbard, in addition to the State prosecution which will try Schwartzbard for the assassination of Petlura.

In connection with these rumors, the Jews here are also forming a civil defense for Schwartzbard, in order to be prepared to counteract the efforts of the Ukranians.

Henri Torres, Schwartzbard’s counsel, declared in an interview with the representative of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, that so far no civil proceedings have been instituted by either Jews or Ukranians.
