Download PDF for this date

Shalom Shtarkes, 24, uncle of Yossele Schumacher, arrived here from London in the custody of an Israeli policeman. He was taken to jail immediately to await a detention order by a magistrate, pending trial for alleged perjury and participation in the kidnaping of Yossele. Shtarkes, who has been fighting extradition to Israel for more than a year, lost his final appeal before Britain’s Lord Chief Justice after a hearing Friday.
