Police Disclosure of Suspect
in Murder Stirs Controversy

TEL AVIV (JTA) — An
angry controversy has de-
veloped over whether the
police should have made
public the identity of the
man they call the prime
suspect in last year's gre-
nade murder of Peace Now
activist Emil Grunzweig be-
fore he is formally charged.
Attorney General Yit-
zhak Zamir was sharply
critical of the police for hold-
ing a live broadcast press
conference last Friday at
which they claimed to have
evidence that Yona Av-
rushmi is the man who
threw the fatal grenade that
killed Grunzweig and
wounded 10 others on Feb.
10, 1983.
Avrushmi, a 28-year-old
resident of Ofra on the West
Bank, was arrested last
week but not charged.
Deputy Inspector Gen-
eral of Police Yehezkel
Carty, head of the Crimi-
nal Investigation Di-
vision (CID), told Israel
Radio that the police de-
cided to hold the press
conference because of
the widespread public
interest in the case.
There had been growing
demands that the police in-
vestigating team be re-
placed because of its lack of
results to date.
According to Carty, the
media would have learned

the suspect's identity in any
event and it was preferable
that the arrest be an-
nounced by the police. The
press conference was
presided over by Interior
Minister Yosef Burg.
But the Civil Liberties
Union and a number of
prominent lawyers have
complained that the wide-
spread publicity may corn-
promise a fair trial for Av-
rushmi. Zamir however, did
not question the legality of
the press conference, only
its propriety.
Former Supreme Court
Justice Haim Cohen
agreed that no legal prin-
ciples were violated but
said the publicity was
"unwise and premature."
Avrushmi's lawyer, Eph-
raim Efroni, has appealed to
the Supreme Court to order
the police to allow him to
visit his client before he is
charged.
According to Efroni, his
client has complained of
police brutality during in-
terrogation. He said he was
made to sit on a hot stove
and then taken out of doors
into the cold. He was also
not allowed to change his
clothes until he soiled him-
self and was not given a
mattress or allowed to lie
down, the lawyer said.
The police claim to
have a tape recorded
conversation in which
Avrushmi confessed to
an undercover agent that
he had thrown the gre-
nade. But Maariv quoted
Avrushmi's former wife
as saying he was with her
at the time and both had
watched the television
report of the grenade
throwing minutes after it
occurred.
The Civil Liberties Union
said this sort of conflicting
evidence was for the courts
to hear, not for the public
before trial.

Within a year, ONA news
was carried by more than 50
daily American and Cana-
dian newspapers. Its re-
porters and correspondents
included outstanding jour-
nalists and writers such as
Theodore White, Meyer Le-
vin, David Schoenbrun, Elie
Abel and Gabe Pressman.
ONA's correspondent
in Stockholm was Willy
Brandt (later to become
Chancellor of West Ger-
many) who used the as-
sumed name of Karl
Frahm. He made several
undercover trips to Nazi
Germany in the early
1940s and was the first
correspondent to report
on Hitler's "final solu-
tion" of the Jewish ques-
tion, the Nazi slaughter of
European Jewry.
During World War II,
ONA established a foreign
language news service
where ONA news was
translated into more than
20 languages and distrib-
uted to the foreign-
language press in the
United States, Canada and

overseas.
Regrettably,
Kayston pointed out, the
ONA was dissolved in the
early 1950s.
"What an important func-
tion it could perform today
to counter anti-Israel prop-
aganda and Jew-hatred so
rampant in the world to-
day," Kayston said. He ex-
pressed his belief that seri-
ous thought should be given
to establish again a news
agency for the general
media based on the JTA
worldwide news network.
"Throughout all my 48
years with JTA," Kayston
said, "JTA had to fight for
its independence. Hardly a
day passes when one or an-
other Jewish organization,
or some political faction in
Israel, does not want to dic-
tate to JTA editors how to
run the agency and what
news to print and which
stories to suppress.
"JTA's independence and
its impartial reporting is its
most valuable asset. If it
should ever deviate from
this policy, it would lose its
effectiveness."

Germans Still Biased

vision series which ap-
peared on German national
television several years ago.
The Cologne inquiry
found that persons of low in-
come and little education
are more anti-Semitic than
academics and office hol-
ders. Anti-Semitic feelings
are more intense among
older Germans, those who
lived during the Nazi era.-
Anti-Semitic sentiments
were found in up to 88 per-

cent of people living in
small towns and villages,
compared to 48 percent in
large urban areas.
There are, at present,
about 30,000 Jews in the
Federal Republic.

The immigrant associa-
