Robert Leonard Back From Visit to USSR
DA Says Soviet Jews Held Against Law
(Special to The Jewish News)
NEW YORK — Two American
district attorneys who just re-
turned from a two-week fact-find-
ing visit to the Soviet Union said
here Tuesday that they reached the
"inescapable conclusion" that Jews
were being held in detention there
in "flagrant violation of the Soviet
constitution and Soviet law."
They referred to the specific
guarantees of a trial within nine
months of arrest. "Many Soviet
Jews have been imprisoned with-
out trial for longer than nine
months," Eugene Gold and Robert
F. Leonard reported to newsmen
at a press conference here.
Gold, district attorney of Kings
County (Brooklyn) is Jewish.
Leonard, district attorney of Gene-
see County, Mich., is a Roman
Catholic. They said they visited
the Soviet Union in private capaci-
ties, specifically to investigate the
condition of Jews. They said they
were the first American public
officials to visit the four Soviet
cities where Jews are reportedly
being held for trial—Riga, Lenin-
grad, Moscow and Kishinev. They
spoke to Jewish families and to
Soviet officials in each of the
cities. They said Soviet Jews are
imprisoned and held incommuni-
cado despite repeated attempts by
their families to visit them and
despite the fact that they appear
to have violated no Soviet laws,
the two American lawyers report-
