Hungarian Government Breaks with Terrorists

July 9, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A definite split has taken place between the government and the militant anti Jewish elements in Hungary. Fourteen leading members of the Awakening Magyars and five members of the “Petofi Guard” have been arrested, having conspired to overthrow the government and to establish a Fascisti dictatorship.

The prisoners have made admissions which incriminate several highly placed personages.

Deputy Goembos. Vice President of the Government Party, has resigned his post. He is placing himself at the head of the Awakening Magyars and announces that he will take independent action to “safeguard” the “Christian regime” in Hungary.
