Danila’s Arrest Completes Round Up of All Anti-semitic Leaders

August 20, 1930
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Carol Danila, notorious anti-Semitic agitator, for whom the police have been hunting for more than a fortnight, was arrested today in Klausenberg (Cluj) and turned over to the state’s attorney. A police dragnet had been out for Danila since he escaped from Dorna after a bomb had been thrown into a Jewish house there.

The arrest of Danila completes the government’s round-up of the leading anti-Semitic chieftains who are all in custody. Zelea Codreanu, although acquitted of a charge of inciting to riot and murder, is still in prison, the priests, Fathers Dumitrescu and Bereinde, are under arrest, and Nicolai Totu and M. Eremia were arrested yesterday.

As a result of all the anti-Semitic leaders now being under arrest the members of the Roumanian cabinet will now leave Bucharest for their vacations abroad, without fear of any anti-Semitic disturbances taking place in their absence.
