251.11 Insull, Samuel/17: Telegram

The Chargé in Greece (Morris) to the Secretary of State

110. Foreign Office has just informed me orally and will confirm by formal note that extradition of Insull cannot be agreed to because treaty of extradition is not in force. Insull will be released from custody this evening but police will not allow him to leave Greece for a day or two. I am advised unofficially by competent officials of the Foreign Office that Venizelos19 as a friendly act could order his deportation to Italy from whence he came as undesirable foreigner. Do you want me to seek such action from Venizelos by personal interview?

  1. Eleutnerios Venizelos, Greek Premier.
