Palestine High Court Rules to Extradite Druze Leader to Transjordania

(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

An important decision concerning the jurisdiction of the Palestine authorities in Transjordania was rendered by the Palestine High Court in the case of Mustapha Khalil, a Druze leader.

The court ruled that the action of the Palestine police in arresting Khalil was illegal. The court, however, ruled at the same time to extradite Khalil who is being sought by the Transjordanian government on charges of highway robbery in Transjordania.
