Download PDF for this date

The Czechoslovak police have arrested M. Orenstein, former commercial attache at the Israeli legation in Prague and an Israeli citizen, according to official information received by the Foreign Ministry here today in reply to inquiries concerning his fate. The charges against Mr. Orenstein are said to be “non-political” in character.

So far the Foreign Ministry has not yet received a reply to its queries concerning Mordechai Oren, Mapam leader and Israeli citizen, who disappeared in Czechoslovakia recently.

Meanwhile, Dr. Leon Kubovi, Israeli Minister to Warsaw and Prague, returned to Prague this morning after spending a week here in consultation with Foreign Ministry officials.
