Fair Trial for Moyne Assassins Demanded on Senate Floor

The two young Palestinians who assassinated lord Moyne “must get a fair and just trial, lest they, too, be added to the staggering toll of Hebrew martyrs in this war,” Senator William Langer, North Dakota Republican, said on the Senate floor yesterday.

Senator Langer denounced the censorship which prohibited newspaper correspondents from reporting “a single word” of the two-hour defense in which the two explained the reasons and motives “which led them to their unfortunate act of despair.” He expressed the hope that the British authorities in Egypt, “who have probably forced this procedure upon the Egyptian judges trying this case, will rectify their grossly erroneous decision.”
