WASHINGTON — The
Soviet government has en-
gaged in "systematic" and
"gross" violations of human
rights in a recent wave of
repression aimed at politi-
cal dissidents, according to
a study released this week
by the Joint Executive Con-
gressional Commission on
Security and Cooperation in
Europe.
The commission staff
study examined the cases of
22 Soviet political dissi-
dents, members of the Hel-
sinki monitoring groups,
who have been imprisoned
or stripped_ of their citizen-
ship since February 1977.
In persecuting the Hel-
sinki monitors, the report
said, Soviet authorities
have broken their own laws
by conducting improper
searches, prolonged pretrial
detentions and denial of
procedural rights to defen-
dants on trial.
The report was re-
leased during hearings in
which testimony on gov-
ernment abuses of the
Soviet legal system came
from three prominent
United States trial attor-
neys who have actively
sought to defend mem-
bers of the Helsinki
monitoring groups. The
three are former U.S. At-
torney General Ramsey
Clark, Washington
lawyer Edward Bennett
Williams and Allen Dur-
showitz, professor of law
at Harvard Law School.
In a related development,
Mrs. Maria Slepak has told
the Canadian Committee
for Soviet Jewry that after
she and her husband, the
leading Soviet Jewish ac-
tivist Vladimir Slepak,
were arrested by Moscow
police last week they were
questioned principally
about the whereabouts of

their youngest son who is in
hiding to escape being
drafted into the Red Army.
Mrs. Genya Intrator, of
the Canadian committee,
said she had spoken by tele-
phone to Mrs. Slepak, who
was released from prison
June 1 after she suffered an
attack of pancreatis, but
was told to report back for
interrogation last Monday.
Her husband is still being
held at Moscow's
Buterskaya Prison.
The Slepaks were ar-
rested Thursday after they
displayed a banner from
their eighth floor balcony
window saying "Let us go
to our son in Israel." They
were charged with "malici-
ous hooliganism" which
could draw a sentence of up
to five years inprisonment.

Meanwhile, the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet
Jewry and the Union of
Councils for Soviet Jews
reported that the Sle-
pak's eldest son, Alexan-
der, who lives in
Jerusalem has cabled
President Carter urging
his "immediate interven-
tion."
Mrs. Intrator reported
that 13 friends of the
Slepaks demonstrated in
Pushkin Square across from
the Slepak home. They were
taken away in a police van
and interrogated.
All were released except
for Ida Nudel, who is consi-
dered the "guardian angel"
of the Soviet Jewish Prison-
ers of Conscience. The
Nudel apartment was ran-
sacked and some of her Heb-
rew books were taken away.

Meanwhile, the 25
Jewish women placed under
house arrest for protesting
the denial of exit visas, de-
monatrated from the win-

Peacenik Urged:
End Food Strike

TEL AVIV (JTA) — Pres-
ident Yitzhak Navon ap-
pealed to Israeli "peace
pilot" Abie Nathan to end
his three-week hunger
strike.
Replying to Navon's let-
ter, he said he was moved by
the President's concern for
his health but will not take
food until the military gov-
ernment on the West Bank
is abolished and the gov-
ernment officially declares
there will be no more set-
tlements in the occupied
Arab territories.
Nathan gained interna-
tional attention in the
1960s when he piloted his
own plane twice to Egypt
as a one-man peace mis-
sion to the late President
Gamal Abdel Nasser. On
both occasions, he was
promptly ousted from
that country.
More recently, Nathan
acquired a "peace ship" with
the contributions of friends.
Anchored in international
waters, it broadcast peace
messages interspersed with
pop music to Israel and the
Arab countries.

dows of their Moscow
apartments last week,
joined by their 17 children.
The women shouted
from their windows that
they wanted to emigrate
to Israel. Foreign corres-
pondents who gathered
near the apartment com-
plex were surrounded by
KGB agents who beat on
the windows of their cars
shouting "Go away, you
are not wanted here."

Actions in support of the
Moscow women were staged
in London, Washington,
D.C. Los Angeles, Cincin-
nati and other Western
cities.
In another demonstraiton
of support, Mrs. Helen
Jackson adn Mrs. Harrison
Williams, co-chairpersons
of the National Conference
on Soviet Jewry Congres-
sional Wives Committee for
Soviet Jewry, sent a tele-
gram to Irene Gildengoni-
Lainer, one of the Moscow
women.
In London, the Women's
Campaign for Soviet Jewry
has urged that the 1980
Olympic Games be taken
away from Moscow.
In New York, the Na-
tional Conference on
Soviet Jewry has learned
that Iosif Begin has been
moved to a prison for
psychiatric testing.
Meanwhile, a 61-year-old
Russian Jewish ship cap-
tain arrived in Israel years
after he first applied for an
exit visa and was summar-
ily dismissed from the
Soviet merchant marine.
Captain Misha Edelman
of Riga, unfolded his saga
for reporters at Ben-Gurion
Airport where he was
greeted by his wife Feiga,
who was allowed to come to
Israel four years ago and his
daughter who came herein
1972.

In Jerusalem, Leon
Dulzin, chairman of the
World Zionist Organiza-
tion Executive, urg4:d
world Jewry not to give
aid, directly or indirectly,
to Soviet Jewish "drop-
outs" — emigres who opt
to settle in countries
other than Israel after ar-
riving in Vienna from the
USSR.
Addressing an assembly
of the Zionist Council of Is-
rael, Dulzin disclosed that
the drop-out rate was run-
ning at about 60 percent
and claimed that if it rose
much higher the aliya
movement in Russia would
be threatened with forcible
extinction. He said the
drop-out rate among Soviet
Jewish emigres from the
large cities in the USSR has
reached 97 percent.
