Download PDF for this date

Akram Zouiatar, the editor of the Haifa Arab paper “Al Hayat”, has been bound over in a sum of £100, with two additional sureties of £50 each, as a guarantee of good behaviour during the year, for publishing a series of anti-Jewish articles likely to disturb the peace.

Auni Bey Abdul Hadi, Secretary of the Palestine Arab Executive, who defended Akram Zouiatar, protested against the Deputy District Commissioner, Mr. Sulman, who tried the case, sitting as a magistrate, for not allowing the Defence to submit evidence that the articles were not of an inciting nature.
