  • Description

    IN PARIS, THE HIGHEST MAGISTRATES OF THE LAND ARE PLANNING WAYS TO HALT THE RISE IN ARMED ROBBERY THROUGHOUT FRANCE. A WAVE OF "OAS BANDITRY" 2- AS NATIONAL PRESS DAILY ACCOUNTS CALL IT - HAS TAKEN ON ALARMING PROPORTIONS SINCE THE BEGINNING OF JULY.

    THIS WAS WHEN FRENCH POLICE REPORTED THE REGROUPING OF FRENCH REFUGEES BELONGING TO THE SECRET ARMY ORGANISATION IN ALGERIA. MOST REFUGEES ARE IN MARSEILLES - SOME 200,000. AND BECAUSE OF THE INCREASE IN CRIME, 800 EXTRA POLICE ARE REINFORCING THE CITY ALREADY.

    THE JUDGES OPENED THE BANDITRY DOSSIER AT AN EMERGENCY MEETING OF THE UPPER COUNCIL OF THE MAGISTRATURE TODAY (TUESDAY) UNDER JUSTICE MINISTER JEAN FOYER. ALSO PRESENT: PREFECTS AND POLICE CHIEFS FOR SOUTH FRANCE AND INTERIOR MINISTRY OFFICIALS.

    TODAY, THE FEARS ARE THAT THE "NEW GANGSTERS" WILL GET A GRIP IN CHICAGO STYLE ON FRENCH TOWNS. ALREADY ACTS OF BANDITRY HAVE LEAPED TO 130 SINCE JULY 1 - A FIGURE THAT IS GIVING GRAVE CONCERN TO PRESIDENT DE GAULLE. HE HAS CALLED A SPECIAL MEETING OF HIS CABINET TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) TO ASSESS THE MAGISTRATE'S AND POLICE PROPOSALS.
