The libel action involving accusations against anti-Semitic professors at Jassy University, brought by Professor Schumuleanu, who has been returned to Parliament as one of the deputies of the Cuzist Party, against Professor Slatineanu, Rector of Jassy University, was dismissed by the Bucharest Tribunal today.
In his official capacity as Rector, Professor Slatineanu sent a confidential report to the Minister of Education pointing out that this disturbances at the Universities were the result of the agitation conducted by the anti-Semitic professors. He also drew attention to the fact that these professors were sabotaging the Jewish students, refusing to give them passes in the examination even when they were the best qualified students in their class.
The Public Prosecutor expressed the view that the report being confidential the Court could take no action.
The Court after considering the case found that Professor Slatineanu had done his duty as Rector in making his report to the Ministry of Education. Moreover, the report had been based on an investigation carried out by Professor Parchon, the Dean of the Medical Faculty, which showed that Professor Schumuleanu did actually sabotage Jewish students in their examinations.
