Northern (N): Soviet Union (NS). Law and Justice

1960

A file of correspondence and reports concerning legal matters in the Soviet Union. Subjects covered in the file include a critical Izvestiya report on the establishment of a "Comrades' Court" at a Latvian school, where cases involved stolen hair ribbons, tennis balls, and sandwiches. Further correspondence discusses a review of a United Nations seminar held in Vienna on the "protection of the rights of the individual in criminal procedure". The review was published in the periodical Socialist Legality, and is said to offer an unusually objective account of proceedings.
