(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

Obstacles in the way of Vladimir Jabotinsky’s obtaining a visa to settle in Palestine arose when the leader of the Zionist Revisionists applied for permission to re-enter the country.

Mr. Jabotinsky intends to settle in Palestine in connection with his new duties as vice president of the Judea Insurance Company, Ltd. He has not resided in Palestine since 1921 when he, with a group of the Jewish Self-Defense during the Jaffa Arab riots, was convicted of possessing fire arms and sentenced to fifteen years imprisonment. The hero of Acre, as he was then known to the Jews of Palestine. was released when Sir Herbert Samuel annulled the sentence.
