The Rumanian authorities have released six imprisoned Zionist leaders and have upset the conviction by a military court of two others, it was learned here. The two will be retried by civilian courts.
The six Jews who were released were named as: Dr. Aharon Cahane, Ephraim Guttman, Dr, M. Zalman, I. Badi, a lawyer, Mrs. Bluma Lupu and Yank Makrlat. The two whose trials were upset were Mrs. Suzanne Benvenisti, wife of World Jewish Congress leader Misu Benvenisti, who had received a ten-year sentence, and attorney Jean Littman, who had been sentenced to 15 years’ imprisonment.
