Jews Are Among Defendants
in Russ 'Economic Crime' Trial
LONDON (JTA)—A number of '
defendants in an "economic crime"
trial held recently in the Soviet
Union, some of whom have been
sentenced to death, appear to be
Jews, it was reported here this
week from Moscow.
The Soviet Law Journal reported
that a 14-member ring of embez-
zlers that stole goods from the
state worth more than S1.500,000
has been convicted.
According to the Journal, the
trial lasted eight months and con-
cluded in December, but the Soviet
press, observers said, did not re-
port it. Some two hundred persons
were called to testify as witnesses.
The Journal said the ring oper-
ated for about a dozen years and
was headed by Alexander Heifitz.
It said that by bribing the direc-
tors of several ladies' wear stores,
the ring sold stolen goods to Mos-
cow department stores. In October
1964, a similar trial was held in-
volving defendants named Roifman
and Shakerman—both Jews—and
most of the 21 defendants were
sentenced to death.

In 1961, large-scale specula-
tion and embezzlement were
made capital crimes and about
150 persons had been executed by
1964. The West condemned the
"economic crimes" trials and they
were apparently discontinued —
at least no death sentences
stemming from them have been
reported in recent years.

The Journal indicated that more
such trials lie ahead, saying some
80 persons had been suspected of
similar crimes. It was generally
ackarioirleaged that, despite Soviet
denials. Jews had been deliberately
singled out for accusation and
trial. The "economic crimes" trials
had been given wide publicity in
Arab Women Stage
I JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Arab women began a sit-in strike
in a Nablus mosque Monday to pro-
test recent arrests by Israeli occu-
pation authorities and the demoli-
tion of house belonging to suspected
terrorists. Nablus, the largest
West Bank town, was the scene
of disorders by students and adults
in recent days. A curfew on the
old part of the city was lifted Mon-
day after four days.
Israeli sappers demolished sev-
eral houses in East Jerusalem
which belonged to suspected mem-
bers of the popular Front for' the
Liberation of Palestine. Several
of the buildings were used as wea-
pons training sites authorities said.
A high-ranking Israeli senior
staff officer suggested that the
series of ' heavy artillery duels
initiated by Egypt along the
Suez Canal demarcation line
stemmed from a calculated policy
dictated by international ex-
ternal pressures and by Egyptian
hopes of gaining political advan-
tages in any Big Four discus-
sions on the Middle East con-
Acting Premier Yigal Allon
warned Egypt to end its "aggres-
sion" on the Suez Canal or that
Israel would use measures like
those "already employed and
some hitherto unused." United
Nations observers confirmed
rael's complaint that in all in-
stances of action this week, Egypt
had started the shooting. Allon
said that if the Egyptians had
decided to disrupt Israeli fortifica-
tion work "they missed their
chance because we are well forti-
fied" and efforts to dislodge Is-
raeli forces would fail.

Egyptian ships in Port Ibrahim on
the Gulf of Suez, smashed three
Egyptian tanks, hit a number of
