Six Hungarian Zionist Leaders Arrested Year Ago Still Imprisoned; Three Others Freed

A report from Budapest, disseminated by a French news agency, giving the impression that all nine Zionist leaders arrested in Hungary a year ago have now been released, was termed here inaccurate.

Information reaching here from Budapest stated that of the nine Zionist leaders who were put on trial in Budapest, only three have recently been released, while six others are still in prison. The three men were freed after they had been acquitted by a court, since no evidence against them could be produced.
