      Vladimir Frenkel, a Jewish convert to Orthodoxy from the Latvian capital of Riga, was pardoned and released from camp on 22 April, reports USSR News Brief. He was arrested on 15 January 1985 and tried in June 1985 after articles of a religious nature were found in his house. He was sentenced to 18 months of labor camp on charges of “slandering the Soviet State". He is now reported to be at home in Rita. There is no information so far on why he was pardoned.
