Charge Police Cruelty Against Palestine Illegals

Download PDF for this date

Charges of police cruelty against illegal immigrants under arrest are contained in alleged eyewitness reports published today in Davar, Palestine labor daily.

The reports assert Jewish illegal immigrants are cruelly lashed to obtain confessions of nationality so they can be deported to their countries of origin.

The Davar also publishes an appeal to the Palestine government and the Jewish Agency to intervene to halt this alleged police cruelty and to take the proper measures against those guilty of instituting such methods.
