Jewish Senator Asks Lifting of Immunity to Start Suit Against Defamers

January 28, 1929
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

In order to enable his defamers to start a counter suit, if they desire, the Jewish Senator Yewelowski, member of the Danzig Volkstag, asked the legislative body of the Free City to lift his immunity.

Senator Yewelowski is bringing suit against a number of anti-Semitic deputies who charged him with favoring the commercial agreement between the Free City of Danzig and the Republic of Poland, because of his private interests.

It was stated in Volkstag circles that the Senator’s immunity will not be lifted as the majority of the Volkstag do not believe in the ridiculous accusations against Yewelowski and consider court proceedings unnecessary.
