LONDON (Sep. 4)
Jewish sources in the Soviet Union reported today that the seven Kiev Jewish activists, who were on a hunger strike last week outside the International Telephone Exchange No. 1 in Kiev, were warned by the police that they would be charged with “vagrancy” unless they took jobs within seven days. The activists had all been dismissed from their jobs because of their applications for exit visas. They had been on a hunger strike in protest against the refusal of the local ovir to give them exit visas or to explain the reasons why exit visas are denied them.
Two Israeli officials accused of taking bribes from Jordanian visitors to the West Bank were released today on IL 5000 bail each by a Jerusalem district court. Moshe Levi, a civilian employe of the military government in Judaea, and Yitzhak Tzemah, an Interior Ministry official in Hebron, face trial for allegedly registering the visitors as West Bank residents so that they could remain with their families.
