This memo spells out the necessity of vigilant security to safeguard the confidentiality of trial briefs, documents, interrogation reports, and other material intrinsic to the prosecution's case, given the presence of the Press, counsel for the defense, and German civilians in the Palace of Justice. The leave policy of the Office of U.S. Chief of Counsel is limited to emergency cases. The emendation of General Memorandum No. 5 concerns a slight extension of the power of the Executive Officer. This document is a typewritten copy on browning, fragile paper.
