The subject of the recent Haas trial, which has been termed the ” German Dreyfus Affair,” was discussed today in the Prussian Parliament, when the Jewish Socialist member, Kuttner, brought up the question.

Kuttner reviewed the facts in the case of the Haas affair and asserted that the judges who tried the case deliberately framed the charge of murder against the Jewish banker, Haas, although they were fully aware that he was not guilty in the death of his bookkeeper.

The Prussian Secretary of State, Fritze, declared that the guilt of Judge Koelling and the other judges before whom the case of Rudolf Haas was tried. had been established and that punishment will be meted out to them.
