A Hungarian Appeals Court this week-end reviewed the sentencing of nine Hungarian Zionists on various charges, including organizing mass emigration of Israel-bound Jews.
Three of the defendants were acquitted, while Nagda Weiss, a Zionist youth leader, had her sentence reduced from two-and-a-half to one-and-a-half years. The other sentences were upheld, except for minor details.
