?ian War Minister Takes Action to Reopen Trials of Perpetrators of Jassy Massacre

Acting on a promise made in Parliament several ## ago, Rumanian War Minister Gen. Mihail Lascar today took vigorous action to ## up the trial of the perpetrators of the Jassy massacre of 1941 in which about ## Jews lost their lives.

The membership of the military tribunal which originally investigated the and dismissed indictments against many of the perpetrators of the pogrom was ##letely reshuffled today and new warrants were issued for all defendants, including ## generals, who had previously been freed. A parliamentary commission is con##ring a proposal to classify the pogrom as a war crime, a move which would place defendants within the jurisdiction of the civil courts.
