Nara Killers of Jew Go Free; No Evidence

Download PDF for this date

Seven members of the now prohibited National Radical anti-Semitic party, who were arrested in June and charged with the murder of a Jew during a Nara attack on Jews, were freed today on the grounds of insufficient evidence.

Three Jewish porters who defended themselves from a Nara attack and gave their attackers a thrashing were sentenced to serve six weeks in jail for having beaten their assailants.
