Download PDF for this date

Dr. Theodor Horovic, Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspondent in Prague, has been disaccredited as a foreign correspondent by the Czechoslovak Ministry of Information. Horovic has left the country for Budapest.

The government action followed an investigation by the Ministry of Information of the news items which Horovic filed from Prague. Horovic was notified of the Ministry’s decision in a letter which pointed out that after an investigation of material submitted by Horovic to the press section, it was decided that continuation of his activities as a foreign newspaperman was “not desirable.” The letter also asked for the return of his credentials.
