WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, 1954 (ARK.) COURIER NEW8 PAGE SEVEN Ex-Red Petrov Accused Of Theft of Large Sums By Russian Embassy CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — The Soviet Embassy accused its fugitive third secretary, Vladimir Petrov, of stealing "large sums" of embassy funds by forgery today and de manded that Australia hand him over as a criminal. In a note to the Australian government, the embassy said Petrov's story of a widespread Soviet spy plot in this country was without foundation and the mass of "espionage" documents he had given Australian authorities might be forgeries. Petrov turned himself over to the Australian government early in April and was granted political asylum. Parliament authorized a royal commission to investigate his story of large-scale Soviet spying and the large mass of date he brought with him from the embassy, but Prime Minister Robert G. Menzies said top security officials were convinced his account was authentic. Contradiction The Soviet Embassy made pub- lic an "unofficial translation" of its note to the Australians. It said Petrov had charge of embassy supply affairs. This contrasted with Menzies' previous announcement that he was the chief in Australia for the MVD, the Soviet secret police. The government has surrounded Petrov with a strong cloak of police secrecy since his switch to the West and security police have been questioning him constantly. Soviet Ambassador N. I. Generalov had charged previously that the Australians kidnaped him, Two Commonwealth security officers also were questioning Petrov's wife today in Darwin, where she left a Europe-bound plane yesterday morning to join her husband in exile.
