Latin American Bloc at U.N. Pleads for Jews on Trial in Egypt

Dr. Jose Vicente Trujillo, chairman of the Ecuador delegation here, is meeting with the Egyptian delegation tomorrow in an effort to get a commitment that Egypt will not let politics enter into the cases of 13 Israelis on trial in Egypt now on charges of being Jewish “spies.”

Dr. Trujillo’s representations to the Egyptian delegation will be on behalf of the entire Latin American bloc here as a result of an extraordinary move by Dr. Moshe Tov, a member of the Israel delegation to the United Nations.
