Moscow (Sep. 2)
(J. T. A. Mail Service)
A protest is expressed today in an article appearing in the “Komsomolskaya Pravda,” the official organ of the Communist Youth in the Soviet Union, with regard to the delay in the retrial of the three anti-Semites who were sentenced here on the first of July to imprisonment for tormenting their 60-year-old Jewish neighbor, Moses Kaufman.
One of the anti-Semites, Andrei Lubinoff, has been sentenced to six months and the other two, Semion Lichomanoff and Stephan Golovkin, to nine months imprisonment each. They were found guilty of torturing the old Jew, Kaufman, daily during the months of April and May. The sentences have aroused a great deal of dissatisfaction among the workers in a number of Moscow factories and also in the press. A retrial has been demanded, and it was later announced that the case would come up again for retrial, which, however, has not yet taken place.
