Demand Radical Change in Bessarabian Administration

Download PDF for this date

An insistent and reiterated demand for a radical change in the Bessarabian administration is being made by the Bessarabian deputies at all meetings of the Parliamentary government party, it is disclosed today.

The Bessarabian representatives demand the dismissal of many Bessarabian officials and especially that of the Prefect of Balti, George Hianoff. Balti is the native town of the four Jewish quarry owners who were arrested and acquitted of signaling to Soviet frontier guards.

Hianoff openly assisted the anti-Semitic Party of Professor Cuza during the last elections.
