Download PDF for this date

Regulations for the strict control of the expected refugee influx from Polish war zones were announced by the Rumanian Government today. A five-point control system was outlined as follows:

1) Asylum will be accorded children and wounded who make their way into Rumania; 2) all foreign troops and military formations crossing the frontier will be disarmed and assigned lodgings until the end of hostilities; 3) persons holding political positions will be obliged to live in specially indicated localities and to refrain from all public activity; 4) private citizens are forbidden to enter Rumania; 5) forces sufficient to enforce these measures will be placed at the disposal of Interior Undersecretary Gabriel Marinesco, who will personally superintend their application.
