Court acquits
Latvian Sporgis
of war crimes

New York (JTA) — Ef-
forts by the Justice De-
partment to strip Elmars
Sprogis, a 69-year-old
former Latvian police offi-
cial of his American citizen-
ship, were thwarted last
P-' day, when a U.S. district
't judge ruled that the
government had failed to
prove beyond doubt that
Sprogis had collaborated
with the Nazis in Latvia
and participated in the
slaughter of Jewish resi-
dents there during World
War II.
In an 87-page decision,
Judge Frank Altimari
wrote that "while it is evi-
dent that Elmars Sporgis
watched 100 or 150
men, women and children
being marched to an execu-
tion site, the court does not
believe that Congress in-
tended to exclude from citi-
zenship persons who were
present when others were
persecuted."
While Judge Altimari
wrote that people should
"never forget the abomina-
ble atrocities inflicted at the
hands of Hitler's Nazis," he
said the government's wit-
nesses to Sporgis' war
crimes were not sufficiently
credible and left room for
doubt. The government re-
lied on two videotaped in-
terviews conducted in Riga,
Latvia. One witness was a
former Latvian policeman
and the other witness said
Sporgis ordered him to de-
liver valuables taken from
Jews scheduled to be exe-
cuted.

Cuban Jews
thank CJC for
Pesach supplies

Montreal (JTA) — The
Jewish community of Cuba
has sent a telegram to the
Canadian Jewish Congress
thanking the "entire Jewish
community in Canada" for
Passover supplies which the
Jews of Cuba received in
time for the holiday.
The telegram was sent by
Dr. Jose Miller, President of
the Commission Coor-
dinadora de las Sociedades
Religiosas Hebreas de
a, the representative
,dy of Cuban Jewry which
maintains its full member-
ship as a member of the
World Jewish Congress.
The 1,000-member
Jewish community in Cuba
continues to maintain five
synagogues and a Jewish
public library. However, the
community has had diffi-
culty in meeting its own
need for several decades.
After the United States se-
vered its relations with
Cuba in 1960, the CJC has
looked after the needs of
Cuba's Jews.

ing. Call for details on special evening
hours.
