Two Arabs were given prison terms at hard labor after they were found guilty of counterfeiting Palestinian currency in the district court here today.

They were detected at manufacturing £100 bills. One was sentenced to 3 years at hard labor and the other to two years. The court criticised the police for failure to discover the counterfeiting machine.
