Transcript invaluable service for Dimitrov, Torgler and the other two Communist defendants, and rightly earned the thanks of all anti-Fascists. What he has to say is noteworthy, not only because he is a great lawyer but also because of his political views. Pritt was in Moscow during the trial—whether by chance or specially for the purpose we have not learned—and he telegraphed to the Liberal News Chronicle (August 27th) from the Crimea, which he visited immediately after the trial, and later wrote a long article for the same newspaper (published on September 3rd), at the same time giving an interview to the Communist Daily Worker. He then wrote a preface to a pamphlet on the Moscow Trial, published by the "Anglo-Russian Parliamentary Committee," which is run by W. P. Coates in accordance with the wishes of the Soviet Government. This pamphlet also reprints the article from the News Chronicle, which concludes with the following words: "The executive authorities of the U.S.S.R. may have taken, by the successful prosecution of this case, a very big step towards eradicating counter-revolutionary activities. "But it is equally clear that the judicature and the prosecuting attorney of the U.S.S.R. have taken at least as great a step towards establishing their reputation among the legal systems of the modern world." Pritt's attitude has been strongly criticized in England, and he has now made a second series of public statements in which he attempts to defend himself against his critics. Thus, he has sent two letters to the Manchester Guardian (September 21st and October 9th) and, as his most important statement, has written a pamphlet of 39 pages, entitled "The Zinoviev Trial" (published by Victor Gollancz). He has also taken the lead in a debate arranged in London by the Society of Friends of the Soviet Union, a report of which appeared in the Manchester Guardian of October 1st. The complete contrast between Pritt's view and our own, obviously calls for a careful examination of Pritt's arguments. Y VITAL DISTINCTION BETWEEN ENGLISH AND RUSSIAN PROCEDURE Pritt points to his authority as an expert in criminal law, to his comparative studies of criminal proceedings in many countries, and particularly to his studies on Soviet Russia which appeared in 1933. I am quite prepared to believe that tremendous progress has been made in criminal trials and criminal proceedings in the Soviet Union, and that in many respects there have been exemplary innovations. But, however much this may apply in criminal cases, it does not prove anything at all with regard to the character of political justice. The first series of statements made by Pritt were bound to produce the greatest astonishment, since he drew all his conclusions solely trom 17
