Spain Reduces Prison Term for Israeli Journalist Caught with Arms

Download PDF for this date

The Spanish Government has reduced the prison term of Zvi Aldouby, an Israeli journalist who was sentenced earlier this year by a Spanish military court to serve nine years in prison after he was arrested on the Franco-Spanish border with several loaded revolvers in his car, it was reported here today.

The Israeli’s sentence was reduced to 18 months imprisonment after intervention in Madrid by the French attorney Tixier Vignancourt, who met last week with the Spanish Minister of the Interior. The latter promised to talk with the Spanish head of Government, General Francisco Franco, concerning a possible amnesty which might facilitate Mr. Aldouby’s release from prison later this year.
