British Correspondent Ordered Expelled

Download PDF for this date

Paul Cremona, correspondent of the Christian Science Monitor, the Wall Street Journal and the London Observer, was ordered by the Propaganda Ministry today to leave the country within eight days. Cremona is vice-president of the Foreign Press Association here.

As in the case of J. David Kleinlerer, correspondent of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, whose expulsion was ordered last Friday, Cremona was told that the reason was his “personal behavior and general attitude.” British Ambassador Lord Perth, calling on Foreign Minister Galeazzo Ciano in connection with the expulsion order against Paul Cremona, who is a British subject, was told that he and other correspondents were ordered deported not on racial or journalistic grounds, but because “of derogatory statements regarding a high Italian personality” which they allegedly made.
