TEL AVIV, (JTA)—Adolf Eichmann, the captured Nazi
leader who directed the annihilation of 6,000,000 Jews in
Europe, was brought again before a magistrate for another
extension of his detention warrant. These have been extended
every two weeks.
Minister of Justice Pinhas Rosen was reported as stating
that Eichmann will be entitled to demand a preliminary hear-
ing before the actual trial takes place. He indicated that the
Israel government would announce that foreign judges could
be present at the trial if they so desired. However, they would
attend only as observers. Any judge who would submit cre-
dentials showing that he represented a particular country
would be enabled to attend on that basis.
Attorney General Gideon Hausner confirmed a report_ that
the Ministry of Justice has invited a prominent American
Jewish lawyer who was a special adviser to the U.S. Attorney
General at the Nuremberg war crimes trial, to assist him in the
prosecution of Eichmann. However, he declined to furnish the
name of that lawyer since the latter has not yet officially
accepted the invitation.
In New York, it was believed that the lawyer invited to
assist the Israeli Attorney General was Dr. Jacob Robinson,
one of the world's outstanding experts on international law
who served as special assistant to Robert H. Jackson, Associate
Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, during the Nuremberg
trials. (Dr. Robinson, who came to the United States from
Lithuania in 1940, after the outbreak of World War II, declined
to comment on the report.)
Hausner said that when Eichmann is brought to trial he
be assisted by several other foreign attorneys.
It was emphasied here that two months have elapsed since
the Israel government had asked several East European coun-
tries if they were willing to cooperate in providing , material
for the Eichmann trial. No replies have been received yet, a
fact which is in marked contrast to statements in the press
of these countries that Eichmann must be judged and severely
Israel and Argentina will probably exchange new envoys
early in October, Shabtai Rosenne, legal adviser to the Israeli
Foreign Ministry, said Tuesday.
Rosenne, who returned to Israel from Buenos Aires, where
he restored amicable relations for his government, said that
all the Argentinian personalities he met—the President, the
Foreign Minister and the legal adviser to the Foreign Ministry
—expressed their desire to consider the Eichmann case as
closed and hoped for the restoration of friendly relations as
soon as possible.

The measure specified that ev-
ery federal law of Canada must
conform to the Canadian Bill of
Rights unless Parliament, by spe-
cial act, decrees otherwise.
The Bill of Rights has jurisdic-
tion only in the federal or Do-
minion field, not in the areas of
concern to the Canadian prov-
inces. As an act of Parliament,
it can be repealed by Parliament.
The preamble to the measure
affirms that "the Canadian na-
tion is founded upon principles
that acknowledge the supremacy
of God, the dignity and worth
of the human person and the po-
sition of the family in a society
of free men and free institutions."
It declared that "men and in-
stitutions remain free only when
freedom is founded upon respect
for moral and spiritual values and
the rule of law."
