Psychiatric abuse of political prisoners in the Soviet Union-- testimony by Leonid Plyushch. Hearing before the Subcommittee on International orgainzations

GPO, Washington, D. C.. 1976, v, 82p., white self-wraps, slightly browned round the edges, nice copy. Ninety-fourth congress second session. Many case histories. From p.17: "The antisemitic element among criminal convicts is exploited. Moroz, for example, was stabbed with a knife. In Odessa, one criminal convict killed a man by the name of Isaelo and then he later confessed that he had been ordered to do this by his KGB interrogators [but--] he was not ordered to kill his cellmate, only to beat him up." He goes on to say that although the press is controlled, "intellectuals learn about this from samizdat. Workers and peasants learn about these things largely from foreign radio broadcasts." Plyushch, a "Ukrainian scientrist," was given "mind-altering drugs"
