Shlomo Neiman, Polish Zionist Revisionist, was transferred to a political cell today after he had declared a hunger strike in protest against being placed among criminal prisoners.

Neiman was arrested and sentenced to twenty-one days imprisonment for blowing the shofar at the conclusion of Yom Kippur services. This is contrary to the regulations at the Wailing Wall.
