Galatz Officials Will Have to Pay for Jewish Losses

Download PDF for this date

The officials responsible for the anti-Semitic student outbreaks this week in Galatz will be held personally liable and will be required to pay damages to the Jews who suffered from the disturbances, Victor Cadere, under-secretary of the state in the ministry of the interior in charge of the division of police and public safety, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency today.

Cadere also said that the government was taking the necessary precautions throughout Roumania to prevent any disturbances on December 10th, the anniversary of the establishment of the nationalist student movement in Roumania.

Referring to the Galatz disturbances, Cadere said that the government was taken unawares. All measures to preserve order while the students were on their way to the congress in Braila and in Braila itself were taken, he said, but no trouble was looked for in Galatz. While the disturbance there was not serious, he stated the officials will be held responsible.

The Galatz disturbances were also aired in Parliament today by the Jewish deputy, Michael Landau, who asked what the ministry of the interior had done to punish the officials and the students. He emphasized that it was a mistake for the government to grant free passage on the railroads to troublemakers.
