Download PDF for this date

Five young Haifa Arabs pleaded not guilty today to charges of espionage, when they were arraigned in the District Court here. The five, under surveillance since 1963, were charged with contacting Syrian intelligence agents in Cyprus and conveying information to them. The court ordered an adjournment of the trial until further notice, after hearing a request by defense counsel for time to review materials and to decide whether to continue on the case.
