  • Description

    To ensure world-wide publicity for the Eichmann trial, due to begin in March, Israel is providing costly facilities for international jurists and newsmen at the trial court in Jerusalem.

    Chief of Police Joseph Nachmias, and Chief Police Administrator Jekutiel Keren (in civilian clothes) inspected progress at the court during a visit Jan. 23.

    Eichmann will answer the charge of "crimes against humanity and against the Jewish people" from a bullet proof glass dock set on the right of the judges.

    During the hearings, there will be simultaneous translations from Hebrew into German, English and French. Eichmann's evidence and whatever is said in German will be translated sentence by sentence.

    A press room has working space for 250 journalists each supplied with earphones to follow the proceedings while they type their reports at the same time.

    The trial building has a cable office capable of sending 100,000 words a day. There will also be two broadcasting booths for correspondents reporting the trial directly to stations abroad.

    Rigorous security precautions will be in force throughout the trial.
