Wauchope Closes Revisionist Paper

Download PDF for this date

Hayarden, Zionist Revisionist daily newspaper, has been suspended for a month by High Commissioner Sir Arthur Grenfell Wauchope, who found four articles printed by the newspaper on the Arlosoroff murder trial objectionable.

Hayarden became a daily on April 15 of this year and is edited by Dr. Joseph Klausner. It was learned here that other Palestine publications may be tried for contempt of court because of comments they printed concerning the verdict of guilty handed down by the mixed tribunal against Abraham Stavsky, young Revisionist, for the murder of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff, Zionist labor leader, last June.

A group of rabbis who did not sign the appeal issued by Chief Rabbi Kook for further defense of Stavsky in the appeal courts, have addressed a plea for Stavsky directly to the High Commissioner. The rabbis opined that Stavsky was convicted on insufficient evidence.
