September 10, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Court proceedings have been started against the clerical organ “Litva” for the publication of the charge in a recent issue that a number of Jews obtained the release of a Jewish communist here by means of bribery.

Serveral of the Jews who are alleged to have at been involved in the corruption were not even in the country at the time the paper refers to.

This is not the first offense of the kind on the part of the “Litva” and the Jews here are looking forward to the trial as an opportunity to expose its general libelous policy.
