February 1, 2011 18:20

A Palestinian Authority court in the West Bank on Tuesday sentenced a Palestinian man to 10 years in prison after finding him guilty of selling land to Israelis.

The 70-year-old defendant, whose name was not released, is from a village in the Nablus area.

He was convicted by a Palestinian magistrates court in Nablus of selling land to the “enemy” in 1981 – in violation of Article 114 of a law dating back to 1960.

The verdict was taken in the presence of the defendant, his lawyer and prosecutor Khalil Salameh.

Baha al-Ahmed, head of the PA prosecutor office in Nablus, said that the PA would chase any Palestinian whop dares to sell lands to the “enemy.” He said that he was acting on instructions from PA Prosecutor-General Ahmed al-Mughni.

“This is a very serious offense that affects the entire Palestinian people,” al-Ahmed said. “Those who violate the law will receive the maximum penalty.”
