Headline: PLO Admits it Can't Pay Fine in NY Terror Lawsuit

by Ari Yashar

In response to a groundbreaking New York court ruling last
week finding that the ‎Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) and Palestinian Authority (PA) are liable for ‎terrorist attacks during the PA terror campaign of 2000-2005, the PLO has admitted it ‎can't pay the damages…‎

PLO Executive Committee member Hanan Ashrawi admitted last Tuesday that "the PA ‎and the (Palestinian Liberation) Organization lack the funds necessary to pay these ‎compensations or fines," as translated and revealed by Palestinian Media ‎Watch (PMW)…‎

PMW unveiled that Issa Karake, PA Parliament Member and director of the ‎Commission of Prisoners, said last month that the ruling "sets a dangerous precedent ‎that contradicts international law," opining that it is "forbidden to deal with or appear ‎before these courts, since their objective is to harm the PLO's standing."‎

‎(PMW Ed. Note: Palestinian Media Watch's documentation of the PA leadership's ‎conduct during the period in question and later statements by PA leaders was a ‎vital part of the prosecution's preparation for the case.)‎
