Jewish Parliamentary Club Voices Distrust in Present Roumanian Government

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

Distrust of the Mironescu cabinet and displeasure with the government’s measures to combat anti-Semitism were expressed today in the Roumanian Parliament by the Jewish parliamentary club. Speaking on behalf of the club, Senator Meyer Ebner, said that while the Jews appreciate King Carol’s honest efforts they are displeased with the government’s actions in fighting anti-Semitism.

Neither the government nor the courts have done their duty, Senator Ebner charged, adding that this failure has created the impression that the anti-Semitic agitators are above the law while the Jews are outside the law. Senator Ebner enumerated the events of the anti-Semitic outbreak in Galatz and also those in Bukovina. Under such conditions, he said, the Jewish parliamentary club cannot vote confidence in the present government.

The Bucharest daily, Adevarul, today sharply criticises the government for its unjustified leniency towards student hooliganism and repudiates the statement of Prof. Nicolai Jorga that school boys and not students were responsible for the December 10th disturbances. The fact that the police identified some of the rioters as students but did not arrest them shows that the students were responsible for the riots from beginning to end, the paper states.
