Fratai Zoltan, Rumanian anti-Semite who organized the destruction last month of the memorial erected in the town of Bestrides to former Jews who perished in deportation camps, was transferred today to Clu? for court martial.

Rumanian police have arrested Baba Rogojan, charged with torturing Jewish women and girls while searching them for hidden valuables. He will be tried at Satu-Mare, the capital of the district where the crimes were committed.
