    Background: TEN YEARS IMPRISONMENT WITH HARD LABOUR AND A FINE OF 1,000 EGYPTIAN POUNDS: THAT WAS THE SENTENCE PASSED YESTERDAY, (WEDNESDAY), BY THE SUPREME COURT IN CAIRO, ON GERMAN STUDENT, FROWALD HUETTENMEISTER, WHO WAS ACCUSED OF ESPIONAGE FOR ISRAEL.

    THE SENTENCE CAME ON THE TRIAL'S THIRD DAY DURING WHICH THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR DEMANDED THE DEATH PENALTY. HE SAID THAT HUETTENMEISTER, WHO WAS ARRESTED LAST NOVEMBER, HAD "COMMUNICATED WITH A FOREIGN COUNTRY IN ORDER TO PASS ON (U.A.R.) MILITARY SECRETS".

    THE PRESIDING JUDGE ASKED HUETTENMEISTER TO VERIFY "YOUR CONFESSION, DURING INTERROGATION, THAT YOU CAME TO EGYPT TO TAKE FILMS, INCLUDING MILITARY INFORMATION, ON INSTRUCTIONS FROM ISRAELI INTELLIGENCE". THE GERMAN REPLIED: IT IS CORRECT TO SAY I CAME TO EGYPT TO TAKE FILMS, BUT I DID NOT KNOW ITS CONTENTS".

    THE PROSECUTOR SAID THE CASE WAS A LINK IN THE CHAIN OF ISRAEL'S DIRTY CONSPIRACIES AGAINST THE U.A.R. AFTER HER FAILURE IN ARMED AGGRESSION.

    HUETTENMEISTER, WHO WAS DESCRIBED AS "A VICTIM AND NOT A CRIMINAL", WHO HAD BEEN "MISLED AND DELUDED BY ISRAELI PROPAGANDA", ALSO HAD HIS PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT CONFISCATED.
