The Jewish colonist, Shulrufer, of the colony Novaya Poltava of the district of Nicholaif was sentenced to two years hard labor, loss of all civil rights and three years exile as an undesirable citizen, by a decision of the Soviet court.
Shulrufer was accused of being an accomplice in a conspiracy, together with other wealthy colonists, against the village Soviet. Shulrufer informed the authorities, accusing the Soviet of bribery and other crimes, which resulted in the arrest and dismissal of several Soviet officials. The trial lasted for over two years.
The Jewish Communist press accuses Shulrufer of being a “Zionist, contrarevolutionary.”
