High Commissioner Wauchope sent a personal letter of regret to Tewfik Bey Ghusseini, prominent Moslem land owner living near here, when his son, Yacoub Bey Ghussein, was allegedly beaten in the prison courtyard at Jaffa after the October, 1933, disturbances. Inspector John A. M. Faraday was the aggressor, according to Falastin, Arabic daily.

This letter should be used as evidence in a lawsuit against the police for brutality, says Falastin, commenting on the sentences passed on fifteen Arab leaders accused of participation in the October affair.

These men should be treated as political offenders not as criminals, says Falastin. The paper points out that they are but part of the thousands of Arabs who took part in the affair, so why not arrest the others too?

Whether it’s local, domestic or foreign, if it’s news about Jewish life you’ll find it in the Jewish Daily Bulletin.
