The State Department said today that Hungary at no time demonstrated any justification for its treatment of Israel Jacobson, who was held incommunicado for nearly two weeks.

Michael J. McDermott, State Department press chief, said the issues raised by the action of Hungary in the Jacobson arrest and in the imprisonment of another American, Robert A. Vogeler, will continue to receive the urgent attention of this government.
