Franz Pfeiffer Richter, the leader of the Chilean National Socialist Party which was revived this week after having remained officially dormant for nearly 25 years, was sentenced to three years in Jail yesterday for anti-Jewish bombings in 1958.

Richter, a 27-year-old law student born in Chile of German parents, said yesterday that this newly reorganized movement was anti-Semitic and followed the same rules set by Hitler. His announcement apparently spurred legal proceedings on an old charge against him of being behind the explosion of some bombs in Santiago synagogues five years ago.
