Refuses Dismiss Murder Charge MEDICECE HAT. June Chief Justice W. R. Howson. of the Albena supreme court Friday dismissed the application of de- fence counsel. G. E. A. Rice, that the case against Sgt.-Maj. Bruno Perzenowski. now on trial for the murder of a fellow prisoner of war, Karl Lehmann. in the Medicine Hat internment camp Sept. 10, 1944, be withdrawn on the grounds that the court had no jurisdiction. In dismissing the application. Chief Justice Howson, said" he con- sidered the land inside the ea- closure at the Medicine Hat camp a part of Canada, and merely an area fenced in to hold prisoners, and Canadian law in this part was in force the same as any other place in the Dominion. In addressing tbe jury Mr. W. D. Gow. crown counsel, reviewed briefly the testimony presented by 18 witnesses called by the crown during the trial. Regarding rumors that Lehmann was a traitor, and took a prominent part in Com- munistic meetings. Mr. Gow said these could not be relied upon. In referring to a statement given during the trial that a British of- ficer had been put to death, for endeavoring to set up a Nazi free corps in a British prison camp in Germany, he said. tbJs man had been given a fair trial and had been found guilty. NO PROPER. TRIAl According to evidence at Per- zeaowski's trial, Lehmann had neve- been, given a chance to defend him- self or answer any questions, and no order for his removal had been issued. In his address to the jury. Mr- Rice urged the jurors to consider the deed as an act of war and not a crime. It was nonsense, he said, to believe Lehma'nn "had been killed out of mere lust, but that accused had ordered and assisted in the deed because it was his duty as a German soldier. When the accused discovered Lehmann was a he dM what any Cana- dian would do Mr. Rice said urging that the crime be considered a poli- tical one incensed by patriotism. The jurv will be charged today. Bidault Makes Progress, French Constitution PARIS. June Cable.) Dapper and courageous Georges Bidault.
