(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Libel proceedings against the “Curierul Israelite”, the official organ of the Union of Roumanian Jews, were instituted by Alexander Cuza, leader of the Roumanian anti-Semites.

The cause for the suit was the statement made by the newspaper that Cuza’s contention that the number of Jews in Roumania is seven per cent of the general population was a lie.

At the request of the editors of the paper, the trial was transferred from Jassy to Tulcea in view of the opinion expressed by the editors that the Jassy court would be biased.
