January 10, 1929

What is regarded as a semi-official statement issued today by the government following the decree establishing a dictatorship rule in Jugoslavia, allayed the fears of Jewish and other minority leaders in the country.

The decree ordered the dissolution of all parties and associations of national and religious character, It was feared that the order would also affect the Kehillah associations in the country. The semi-official statement gives the assurance that the new government decree will not affect the religious and cultural institutions of the national minorities and least of all the Jewish associations, as they have taken no part in the internal party strife in the country.
