Arab Higher Committee Informs U.N. of Decision to Boycott Probers

Download PDF for this date

The Palestine Arab Higher Committee today officially informed U.N. Secretary-General Trygve Lie that the Palestine Arabs will boycott the inquiry committee.

A communication signed by Jamal Husseini, deputy chairman of the committee, said that the action was being taken because of the failure of the special session to call for termination of the mandate; the refusal of the General Assembly to place the goal of independence on its agenda and the failure of the session to separate the world Jewish refugee problem from that of Palestine.
