Four 'Highlights' TV Programs Are Shortchanged
Dedicated to '66 Allied Drive
BONN (JTA)—A spokesman for
the ministry of finance denied re-
ports that victims of Nazism, most-
ly Jews, receiving pensions and
restitution have been short-changed
by the government.
Dispatches had reported that,
through an "error" charging the
victims with income taxes on tax-
free payments and through failure
to increase their pensions to the
same scale paid civil service work-
ers, the restitution recipients had
been short-changed by about $100,-
000,000 in the last 10 years.
Terming those reports "untrue,"
the spokesman said that the in-
demnity courts had, so far, found
no case in which restitution pay-
ments were lower than the amounts
due. Just because government of-
ficials' salaries, he added, have
been raised 10 per cent, it should
not be assumed that pensions paid
to victims of Nazism were less
than the amounts due.
