French Police Nip Plan to Counterfeit Palestine Money

Download PDF for this date

The watchfulness of the French frontier police on the Syrian-Lebanon border today frustrated what appeared to be an attempt to counterfeit Palestinian money on a large scale. Suspicious of a car crossing the border, the police stopped it and found that it contained a complete plant for making counterfeit Palestine notes and currency, in addition to electrotype plates. Considerable money was also found in the possession of the chauffeur who was arrested and taken to Beirut for questioning.
