Legislation providing fines and imprisonment for persons dealing in goods produced by “Zionist labor” in Palestine has been drafted by the Lebanese Government and will be presented to the Chamber of Deputies for approval. Maximum punishment under the law would be 15 years imprisonment and fines totalling twice the value of the goods sold or purchased.
