Report Of Sub-committee
BR has requested assistance for Rudolf Hess who is imprisoned with two other Nazi leaders. Benenson informs BR that this case is outside Amnesty's terms of reference, because Hess has advocated and practised violence. There is no other organization with the courage to face the situation. He suggests the creation of an international clemency committee by the United Nations to deal with these delicate cases. Benenson requests BR's assistance in bringing about such a committee.
Enclosed is a report of a sub-committee, document .150250.
