Jabotinsky Contemplating Suit Against Chancellor, Passfield

Download PDF for this date

Vladimir Jabotinsky, leader of the Zionist Revisionists, is consulting lawyers here with a view to a possible suit against Sir John Chancellor, High Commissioner of Palestine, and Lord Passfield, British Colonial Secretary, for injuring his interests in declining to grant him a visa to return to Palestine. The High Commissioner and the Colonial Office have both declined to permit Mr. Jabotinsky to reenter Palestine.

In view of his being barred from Palestine, Mr. Jabotinsky today resigned as vice-president of the Judea Life Insurance Company.
