Congress Court Vindicates Grossman of Confidence Breach

Download PDF for this date

Meer Grossman, English Revisionist leader, whom the Zionist Executive had charged with having given to the general press the contents of the White Paper of October, 1930, before that document was officially released was vindicated tonight by the Zionist Congress Court of the charge of breach of confidence.

The Congress Court, however, reprimanded him for a breach of party discipline, although admitting that this breach was committed without any motive of self-gain. The cost of the trial was divided equally between Grossman and the Zionist Organization.

Grossman was charged by the Zionist Executive with a violation of confidence, breaking party discipline and the misuse of an official document.
