Erno Osher, a Zionist leader in Bratislava, has been sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment by a Czechoslovak court, the newspaper Davar reported today on the basis of information from Rumania.

In another dispatch, from Hungary, Davar said that two Zionist leaders, Dr. Bella Denesh and Dr. Henric Galosh, are facing trial by a military court. The report said that several months ago Dr. Denesh completed a three-year prison sentence, but was immediately taken into custody and is now awaiting trial.
