News Brief

Jewish sources in the Soviet Union reported yesterday that Dr. Victor Polsky, the activist whose trial was to start in Moscow last Thursday on a trumped-up charge of dangerous driving, was admitted to the hospital suffering from a hernia. He was taken to the hospital on the day when he was due in court. Edward Lyons, Labor MP and a member of Amnesty international, said that he would continue to try to attend Dr. Polsky’s trial.
