  • Description

    THE HEAD OF THE SOVIET AIRLINE 'AEROFLOT' IN HOLLAND, MR. VLADIMIR GLUKHOV, WHO WAS ARRESTED LAST WEDNESDAY ON SUSPICION OF ESPIONAGE, WAS RELEASED BY THE DUTCH OFFICIALS LATE HIS AFTERNOON (SUNDAY). AFTER HIS RELEASE FROM PRISON IN THE HAGUE HE WAS DRIVEN IMMEDIATELY BY RUSSIAN OFFICIALS TO THE SOVIET EMBASSY.

    MR. GLUKHOV'S RELEASE FOLLOWS SEVERAL DAYS OF INTENSIVE DISCUSSION AS TO HOW LONG HE COULD BE LEGALLY DETAINED. ON FRIDAY IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT, CONTRARY TO NORMAL DUTCH LEGAL PROCEDURE FOR A SHORT DETENTION, MR. GLUKHOV WOULD BE ALLOWED TO SEE A LAWYER.

    THIS AFTERNOON, THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR DECIDED THAT MR. GLUKHOV COULD LEAVE THE PRISON. HE WAS COLLECTED OUTSIDE THE PRISON BY REPRESENTATIVES OF THE RUSSIAN EMBASSY, AND TAKEN TO THE EMBASSY BUILDING, HALF AN HOUR LATER.

    DUTCH PRESS REPORTS HAD EARLIER STATED THAT IT WAS BELIEVED MR. GLUKHOV'S NAME APPEARED ON A LIST OF MORE THAN 300 NAMES CARRIED BY AN AUSTRIAN WHO WAS ARRESTED AFTER INFORMATION OBTAINED FROM ITALY. MR. GLUKHOV HAD BEEN DETAINED ON A CHARGE OF MAKING 'AN ABORTIVE ATTEMPT TO OBTAIN DUTCH STATE SECRETS'.
