Revisionists Visit Trio in Jerusalem Jail

Download PDF for this date

The entire Revisionist Zionist faction present in Jerusalem for the meeting of the Actions Committee of the world Zionist Organization visited Abraham Stavsky, Aba Achimeier and Zvi Rosenblatt. Revisionists soon to be tried for the murder of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff, Zionist labor leader, in the Jerusalem jail where they are confined.

They found the men wearing civilian clothes. The arrested Revisionists made no complaints about their treatment. They said that they had been well treated, allowed to read newspapers and permitted to take walks in an open air enclosure twice a day. Stavsky gained about thirty-five pounds while in jail.

The three men were arrested soon after Dr. Arlosoroff was killed on June 16 of last year. A long drawn-out hearing followed, in which a maze of conflicting testimony was offered by the defense and the prosecution. The decision to hold the men for trial was arrived at only a few weeks ago.
