Hold 20 Cuban Jews for Military Courts

Download PDF for this date

Twenty Jews were arrested today here and will face a military tribunal for having kept their factories and stores closed during the general strike. The government ordered all businesses to remain open during the strike.

Factories and stores owned by the arrested men have been sealed on orders from the central government and the group turned over to the military authorities.

An attempt made by the Jewish Juridical Committee to intervene on behalf of the men failed. Military officials declared that they must now be tried by military courts.
