  • Description

    After a tape-recorded 'family conference' in the Governor's office at Tourah Prison, Jan 24, Mrs. Elda Zarb decided to extend her stay in Cairo and postpone the last of sight visits to her husband, James Zarb - sentenced by a United Arab Republic court in 1957 to ten years imprisonment for alleged espionage.

    Mr. and Mrs. Zarb and their two-and-a-half year old son Gerald listened tearfully as messages from their three daughters back in Britain were played on a tape recorder.

    Arriving from Britain Dec 31, Mrs. Zarb was permitted eight visits to her husband. She was due to make the final visit Jan 25, but because of the daughter's messages will probably stay in Cairo a little longer. Little Gerald had never seen his father before Jan 1 this year. He was born after his father was sentenced.

    A Maltese businessman, James Zarb has been the only Briton in Torch Prison since the release of a fellow prisoner, James Swinburn - also imprisoned for alleged espionage - last September.
