Investors Fail,
Sale Prevented

Jerusalem (JTA) — Two
Polish investors have failed
so far in their attempt to
purchase a controlling inter-
est in the Paz oil company,
partly because the Israelis
are not sure just who the in-
vestors are.
A Polish group, repre-
sented by Bogoslaw Bagszik
and Andrzej Gozirowski, ap-
proached Australian Jewish
entrepreneur Jack Liber-
man with an offer to pur-
chase, for $85 million, what
local reports are saying is
half the Israeli firm's stock.
The Poles reportedly turn-
ed the money over to an
Israeli trustee, but the deal
was put on hold because the
authorities were reluctant to
approve a transaction that
would transfer part of
Israel's oil reserves to a
company whose background
is not clear.
Both the sellers and Israeli
authorities voiced doubts
about the transaction.
By law, the sale is not sub-
ject to government approval,
because Paz is a private
company. The Liberman
group is allowed to sell
shares in Paz so long as it
does not sell to "hostile
elements" or endanger
Israel's security in any
manner.
In an attempt to clear
things up, Mr. Bagszik said
he is Jewish, and that he
received Israeli citizenship
under the Law of Return.
But the Interior Ministry
now has doubts about his
Jewishness.
Israel's daily Yediot
Achronot reported that only
a year ago, Mr. Bagszik in-
troduced himself as a
"genuine Christian" at a
meeting of Polish busi-
nessmen. But last week, he
told reporters that his Jew-
ish parents died when he
was 4 years old, and
therefore he is Jewish, as are
his four children.
Meanwhile, his partner
has also submitted a request
for Israeli citizenship, but
has so far not appeared at
the Interior Ministry despite
an official request to do so.
The ministry announced it
would check the
backgrounds of both men
once again. If Mr. Bagszick
is found to have provided
false testimony, the interior
minister will annul his
Israeli citizenship.
Interviewed last week, Mr.
Bagszik himself sounded
skeptical. He said if all par-
ties agree not to go ahead,
there would be no deal.
