Jewish Agency Leaders Prevented from Talking to Visiting Journalists at Latrun Camp

Moshe Shertok and Bernard Joseph, Jewish Agency leaders held at the Latrun detention camp, today refused to appear before newspapermen who were permitted to visit the camp but were not allowed to communicate with the detainees.

The action of Shertok and Joseph in not showing themselves was a demonstration of protest against forbidding the journalists to speak with the arrested Jewish leaders. The newsmen were puzzled at the real reason for their visit to the camp.
