Download PDF for this date

Sheik Abdul Kader Muza Faar, member of the Arab Executive and leader of the Arab riots of last October in Jerusalem and Jaffa, refused today to sign a peace bond in lieu of imprisonment when his case was heard in district court.

The court thereupon sentenced him to be imprisoned for six months and to be under police surveillance for one year.

Fourteen other Arab leaders arrested for participation in the riots signed the peace bond required and were released.
