Trial of Zionist Revisionists for Conducting Independent Political Work Opens

The trial of the Zionist Revisionists charged with breaking the resolution adopted by the Actions Committee of the World Zionist Organization, prohibiting all separate unions within the organization from conducting independent political work, opens here this evening before the Zionist Court of Honor.

The Revisionist organization was adopted as a separate union within the organization with this proviso at the last session of the Actions Committee in London last summer.

The specific charge against the Revisionists is that Dr. S. E. Soskin, secretary of the World Union of Zionist Revisionists, infringed upon the agreement, when he was received in audience by the Polish Foreign Minister Beck with whom he discussed Zionist matters.

Dr. Soskin will conduct his own defense. Dr. S. E. Groneman, chairman of the Congress Court, will preside.

Berl Locker, member of the World Zionist Executive in charge of organization, and Dr. Lauterbach, secretary of the organization department of the Executive, will represent the Zionist Organization before the court.
