251.11 Insull, Samuel/192: Telegram

The Minister in Greece (MacVeagh) to the Secretary of State

108. Grounds of refusal cannot be definitely stated till we have had a chance to study documents. Decision apparently admits acts committed were violations of the law in both countries but contends that the proof of criminal intent so far submitted is insufficient. The prosecutor told Harness this morning that he believes the way is thus left open for introduction of new evidence and reopening the case and he is now preparing memorandum on this subject after conference with Solicitor General. Will advise further very shortly. I am seeing Foreign Minister this afternoon.
