Aliens Tribunals Set Up in Palestine

Advisory committees have been set up in Jerusalem, Jaffa and Haifa to investigate the cases of enemy aliens interned since the outbreak of the war, it was reported here today. Internment has not been resorted to in the case of Jewish immigrants from Germany and Austria, but only for non-Jewish German colonists, many of whom are known Nazis or are friendly to the Nazi regime. It is recalled that Palestinian groups carrying swastika banners participated in Hitler Youth conventions in Nazi Germany. Prior to the outbreak of the war, the German Consulate in Jerusalem had advised nationals to return to Germany.
