Deportation of Communists from Palestine

Twelve Communists who were arrested here, together with a number of others, on the eve of Nebi Musa, in the interests of public safety, have been bound over in sums ranging from £50 to £200, and the court has recomended subsequent deportation in the case of those who are not Palestinan citizens. Deportation has also been ordered in the case of 11 Communists who have been tried in Tel Aviv for attacking a meeting held at the Left Poale Zion Club there on April 22nd., after the prisoners have completed their sentence of seven days imprisonment.
