Soviet Frees Jewish Poet

LONDON (JTA)—Joseph Brod-
sky, the Russian Jewish poet who
was jailed five years ago as a
"work-shy par a s i t e," has been
freed, according to reports from
Moscow. The 25-year-old poet was
jailed after he wrote poems critical
of Soviet life.
Disclosure of his sentencing
touched off repeated protests from
writers and intellectuals in the
West. It was believed that his re-
lease was connected with efforts
being made to free Yuli Daniel and
Andrei Sinyaysky, two other Soviet
authors who were recently sen-

tempt against any identifiable

offense and is liable to imprison-
ment for two years or an offense
punishable on summary convic-
tion."
Under the proposed amendment,
no legal action would be taken if
the individual concerned "proves
that the statements communicated
were true."
The committee report noted that
Saul Hayes, executive vice-presi-
dent of the CJC, indicated he
wished the recommendations to
exclude truth as a defense.
The committee made a number
of "supplementary recommenda-
tions" among them one calling for
government action on statutes and
regulations on hate propaganda
material and activities, so that
such rules would be related "to
the general standard as set out
in the criminal code rather than
to a standard established inde-
pendently by "various government
agencies and departments.
Urges Checking of Hostility
The letter by the Canadian Jew-
ish Congress to Premier Pearson
urged that in amending the crimi-
nal code for more effective treat-
ment of hate propaganda, "the
definition of scurrility should pro-
vide' that 'scurrilous matter' in-
clude matter a principle purpose
of which is to promote hatred or
contempt of or hostility against a
class of persons or against any
person as a member of a class by
reason of the particualr race, na-
tionality or ethnic origin, color or
religion of such class or person."
In language similar to that pro-
posed by the government commit-
tee for treatment of genocide
charges, the letter proposed that
"to preserve the nature of legiti-
mate debate and publication," the
proposed amendments "should also
provide that no person shall be
convicted of an offense only by
reason of having published in good
faith and in decent language state-

ments relating to controversial so-
cial, economic, political or religious

beliefs or opinions."
The letter to the Prime Minister
,;- -noted briefly that the CJC propos-
als were aimed at protecting con-
stitutional rights of freedom of
speech and press. The letter said
the CJC was "encouraged in our
belief thPk• such an amendment
would b in harmony with the
mores of the community by the
recapitulation of the general laws
of this country on matters of free-
dom of speech which were ex-
pressed by the advisory opinions
of two Postal Boards of Review."
Those review boards acted in sup-
port of the actions of two Post-
masters General who banned the
use of the mails in 1965 to hate-
mongers.
