Download PDF for this date

The Chief of the Secret Service Department in the Police Force of La Paz, the capital of Bolivia, has been suspended from duty and arrested together with his secretary, on charges of corruption proved against them by Jewish witnesses.

This is the latest development in connection with the arrest of a number of Jews in Bolivia (reported in the J.T.A. Bulletin of the 2nd. inst.) on an accusation of Communism, for which they had been ordered to be deported. All the charges against the Jews have now been suspended.
