§ 29. Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies 17 whether he can yet give the result of the appeal by Jemal el Husseini against the sentence of 10 months' imprisonment for inciting the Jaffa riots?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)
Jamal el Husseini has been discharged conditionally upon entering into a bond of £100 to be of good behaviour for a period of three years and to come up for sentence at any time during that period when called upon to do so.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
May I ask whether a similar act of mercy and oblivion will be extended to Achi Meir?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
This is not an act of mercy and oblivion. It is a case in which an appeal lay from a court of first instance to the Court of Appeal, and this is the judgment of the Court of Appeal.
