(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - Palestinian workers from the West Bank arrested for working in 1948 occupied Palestine without permit have been sentenced in summary trials over the past couple of days, the Palestinian prisoner’s association in Jenin said.
The PPA said in a press release on Saturday that 50 Palestinian workers, most of them from Jenin, were slapped heavy fines.
It said that the trial took place in Haifa, Yaffa and Nazareth, noting that the fines ranged from 500 to 2000 shekels.
The association pointed out, however, that four of those workers were sentenced to two months in jail and a 4000 shekels fine. They were detained at a construction workshop in Haifa.
