Seven Revisionists Held in Brith Biryonim Case

Download PDF for this date

The preliminary examination of the arrested members of the Brith Ha’biryonim, alleged Revisionist Zionist terrorist organization, was concluded today. The Revisionists are the extreme right wing of the Zionist movement.

Seven of the arrested Biryonim were held for trial at the next as sizes, and seven were released, including Dr. Hareven. The defence reserved its case for presentation at the trial itself.

Some twenty members of the alleged terrorist organization were arrested by the Palestine police about two months ago in the course of a series of country-wide raids, and held under the Seditious Acts law. Six were released immediately and the other fourteen released on bail. Among the arrested Revisionists was Aba Achimeir, now accused of the murder of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff, noted Zionist labor leader.
