In April of 1949 the government of Czechoslovakia announced that Vlasta Vraz had been arrested on suspicion of spying for the U.S. government. The Czechs said that Vlasta's role as the Prague representative of American Relief for Czechoslovakia was merely a front for her spying activities. Naturally the United States felt that the detention of Miss Vraz, a native-born American citizen was outrageous, and demanded her immediate release.
