Appeals to Iraq to Commute Death Sentences of 3 Jews Reportedly Fruitless

All appeals to the Baghdad Government to commute the death sentences imposed on three Iraqi Jews for allegedly spying for Israel have yielded no results so far, the chairman of the Iraqi Immigrants Association said here today. David Patia, a member of the Knesset (Parliament), said he had his information from reliable diplomatic sources abroad. It was reported but not verified earlier this week that they had been executed.
