7 Greek Taxi Drivers Jailed for Part in Salonica Clashes

Download PDF for this date

Seven Greek taxi drivers were sentenced today to four days imprisonment each for participating in the anti-Jewish street attacks which took place in Salonica several days ago.

Following Jewish representation, a strong police force has been assigned to the Jewish quarters in order to prevent a recurrence of anti-Jewish incidents.

General Kondylis, Vice Premier and Minister of War, who became a national hero when he crushed the Venizelist uprising in March, addressing a large mass meeting here, said that he had always had warm sympathies for the Jews.

“The Jews can always rely on me,” he said. “As long as I am in the government they need have no fear for anything.”
