  The Cry of the New Martyrs Fr. Iosif Rinkevich

    In April of this year, after 15 years' forced confinement in Special Psychiatric Hospitals, 62 year-old Orthodox priest Fr. losif Rinkevich was finally released. He had served six previous sentences for his religious activity, after which he lived in hiding in a dug-out under the home of one of his parishioners. In the spring of 1973 he was betrayed by a neighbor and again arrested. Prolonged drug "treatment" at the SPH where he was imprisoned brought him close to death. His present state of health is not known.
