Some 3,000 Israelis gathered outside the Knesset in Jerusalem last
week to demonstrate support for the release of Jewish terrorists.

Jerusalem (JTA) — Attorney
General Yitzhak Zamir affirmed
Monday that the judicial process
must run its course before am-
nesty or pardons can be consid-
ered for the alleged members of
a Jewish terrorist underground
now on trial and those already
sentenced and serving prison
terms.
Zamir stated that position in
a written reply to Premier Shi-
mon Peres who had asked him
last week for a legal opinion to
clarify the situation of the trial
defendants and the amnesty is-
sue. Peres made his request in
face of a rising clamor for am-
nesty from Jewish settlers in
the West Bank and their politi-
cal supporters.
Zamir stated in his opinion
that the legal proceedings must
not be interfered with. He
pointed out that only the
president is authorized to grant
amnesty and then only after the
courts have handed down a ver-
dict. This confirmed the view of
most jurists that amnesty can-
not be granted prior to trial and
conviction. Zamir indicated that
those presently in jail must wait
until the trial of the others is
over before they can petition for
pardons.
The defendants, he said, are
entitled to apply to the Attorney
General for stay in the proceed-
ings.
The question of amnesty for
alleged members of the Jewish
undeiground terrorist gang has
become an explosive issue in Is-
rael. The demand for immediate
release of the Jewish suspects
on trial and those already con-
victed arose from West Bank
settlers in reaction to the con-
troversial and generally unpopu-
lar prisoner exchange of May
20. Deputy Premier Yitzhak
Shamir, leader of Likud, went so
far as to promise the wives of
the defendants yesterday that
their spouses would be released
shortly.
Shamir visited the women
who are on a hunger strike out-
side the Knesset building. He
was reported to have been him-
self in an emotional state when
he begged them to end their fast

because their husbands soon
would be freed. He claimed this
was the wish of the majority in
Israel. "We have been acting on
this issue for quite some time
now. There is a campaign, a
war. There is no need for this
strike," he said.

No Request For
Nazis' Release

Amsterdam (JTA) — West
Germany will make no request
of the Netherlands government
to release the last two Nazi war
criminals held in a Dutch jail.
Richard Von Weizsaecker,
president of the Federal Repub-
lic, told reporters this week dur-
ing his state visit to Holland
that the prisoners are Franz
Fischer and Ferdinarnd Aus Der
Fuenten, who headed the SD
offices for the deportation of
Jews in The Hague and
Amsterdam during World War
II. There are elements in West
Germany seeking their release.
Von Weizsaecker said an official
appeal from the Bonn govern-
ment to free the Nazis and cer-
tainly a public appeal would be
"misplaced" and that he had no
intention of interfering. The
German chief of state added
that his first duty was to recog-
nize and respect the great sen-
sitivity in the Netherlands on
this issue.
Von Weizsaecker also told re-
porters that he had been as-
tonished that during a discus-
sion with Dutch high school
students the issue of the alleged
mistreatment of Turkish labor-
ers in West Germany was com-
pared to the Holocaust. He said
the youngsters charged that the
Turks were being made "the
scapegoats just as Jews were
during the Hitler regime."
The German president said
that what appalled him was the
annihilation of the Jews, un-
precedented in history, was put

on the same level as the be-
havior toward the so-called
guest laborers from Turkey.
