Government Committee Reports on Conditions of Palestine Jewish Interhees in Sudan Camp

The government committee which flew to the Suden last month to investigate the conditions under which 268 Jewish terrorist suspects from Palestine are confined, reported today that it had found that the water supply was example, food rations good, and hygienic and health conditions satisfactory.

The committee, which was sent to the Sudan after relatives of the deportees had protested to the government that the prisoners were complaining of bad living conditions, also said that the military authorities have installed sufficient facilities to make the camp comfortable and disclosed that High Commissioner Lord Gort has approved the shipment of books and educational facilities there as well as the assignment of a rabbi and a shechet. The deportees will receive wine and matzche for Passover.
