Assailants of Lord Moyne Refuse Lawyers’ Aid; Will Defend Themselves at Trial

Elihau Khakim and Ephraim Ben-Zuri, the two young assassins of Lord Moyne, today announced that they would refuse to have counsel assigned to them and would conduct their own defense.

Both youths asked for pen and ink and a Bible to prepare their speeches. They demanded that the court proceedings be conducted in Hebrew. It was learned, at the same time, that the family of one of the accused intends to send a lawyer to the trial as an observer.
