Hungarian Parliament Asked to Speed Adoption of Jewish Rehabilitation Law

Minister of Justice Istvan Ries has asked Parliament to grant a special rule to the Jewish Rehabilitation Bill, which is slated to be introduced tomorrow, enabling it to be adopted with a minimum of delay.

The Justice Ministry announced today that indictments against 35 persons implicated in the anti-Jewish riots at Miskolc last July and August, which cost the live of two Jews, have been completed, and their trial is expected to begin the latter half of this month. The charges range from murder to assault.
