Citizenship for Roumanian Staatenlose: New Bill Backed by Many Non-jewish Deputies Introduced in Par

Deputy Rosenberg, a Jewish Deputy belonging to the Government Party, has introduced a bill in the Chamber placing the initiative on Parliament in taking action to give wider facilities under the existing Citizenship Law to enable those persons who were living in Roumania at the time that the new Provinces were unified with Old Roumania to become citizens, if they did not opt for any other State after 1924, or if they even opted for foreign citizenship, did not leave the country or become foreign subjects.

The bill which provides for the applicants for citizenship appearing before a judge or a Government authority to establish their claim, without the setting up of any special citizenship tribunals, is backed by a number of non-Jewish Deputies as well as by the Jewish Deputies.
