Transcript . . . The sixteen defendants have "confessed"—but the principal defendant, the true "spiritus rector" of all conspiracies, Leo Trotsky, has not confessed. On the contrary, he most energetically denied that any of the accusations against him, which the defendants made in their "confessions," are grounded in truth. Yet after having sentenced the sixteen to be shot, the verdict of the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court closes with the following order: "Leo Davidovitch Trotsky, and his son, Leo Leovitch Sedov . . . are subject in the event of their being discovered on the territory of the U.S.S.R. to immediate arrest and trial by the Military Collegium of the Supreme Court of the U.S.S.R." (p. 180) ... It is our duty to point out that the inclusion of Trotsky in the "amalgam" of the trial is one of the most wanton and ridiculous actions which have ever been encountered in the criminal witchcraft trials. The practical object of this action is the most ignominious chapter of the whole affair. It is an attempt to deprive Trotsky of the right of asylum in Norway and to organize a hue and cry against him which would leave him no place anywhere in the world where he could live. . . . On the basis of the "results of the trial, which are supposed to 'prove' that Trotsky who is living in Norway, is the organizer and director of the terroristic act, the object of which is the assassination of members of the Soviet Government and leaders of the Soviet People," the Soviet Government, addressed a note to the Norwegian Government on August 30, 1936, the shameless text of which can be read in the Communist "Rundschau" (No. 40, p. 1682). The note closes with the following words: "The Soviet Government hopes that the Norwegian Government will not fail to take the necessary measures to withdraw from Trotsky the further right of asylum on Norwegian soil." The Soviet Government openly demands the withdrawal of the right of asylum from a political refugee, and it indirectly demands still more, namely, the surrender of Trotsky to the Soviet Government, by pointing to negotiations which are being conducted in Geneva—and are not even concluded—according to which "Members of the League of Nations have to support each other in the struggle against terrorism." ... On June 21, 1936, a "Conference for the Right of Asylum" initiated by the Communists following a really brilliant idea, adopted in Paris (see "Rundschau," No. 29, p. 1176) a well considered draft of a law for political fugitives which contained the following two paragraphs: "Article 4: The political refugee shall be admitted to the country in which he seeks asylum, and may not be expelled therefrom. "Article 5: Should the authorities of his country . . . demand his extradition, satisfaction can only be given them, whatever the official reasons for 41
