The protest was made by Archbishop Jozsef Groesz of Kalocsa, who was arrested in May of 1951 and sentenced to a 15-year prison term for "acts of espionage." He was granted "clemencY" and allowed to re- turn to his archdiocese in the middle Of 1956. According to re. ports reaching here, he has now stated in a letter to Hungarian Premier Ferenc Muennich: "These men have been my collaborators for years. I per- sonally assume responsibility for everything they have done. If these priests are convicted, then I should be convicted. I re- quest that you arrest me too and jail me with my friends." In mid-February, Radio Buda- pest identified the nine arrested priests as Fathers Istvan Ta- body, Laszlo Irkvay, Lasz!o Kiss, Gyoergy Leoley, Ferenc Csonka, Oedon Lenard, Oedon Barlay, Gyoergy RonaiDetre and Gyoergy Pecsi.
