5 Anti-jewish Rioters Get Jail Terms in Lithuania

Five persons who participated in anti-Jewish excesses in the town of Neuvileika on Oct. 29 were sentenced to imprisonment by the District Court today. The ringlender, Kaziemierz Czerniak, received a four-year term and his four accomplices received one-year sentences. The prosecutor had demanded severe punishment to show that “the period of unjust treatment for minorities has ended and all citizens are equal in Lithuania.”
