These "convicted offenders" circulated anti-Soviet materials (and sentiments), are here at a press conference (along with their prosecutors) attended by foreign correspondents, and are asked a few questions. They seem pretty cowed. Note that they got smeared with WWII-era Nazi collaborationism, along with the actual cooperation with VOA and being helpful to US and other "tourists." Last question concerns "so-called dissidents being forcibly placed in mental clincs," produces an interesting evasion by way of answer. Also, several pages of discussion of Sakharov.
