U.S. Congressman Protests Commerce Dept.'s
Lax Regulations of Anti-Arab Boycott Law

WASHINGTON (JTA)—
Proposed regulations deal-
ing with the anti-Arab boy-
cott law "seriously under-
mine" Congressional intent
in passing the law, Rep.
Joshua Eilberg (D-Pa.)
charged last week.
In a strongly worded pro-
test to the Commerce De-
partment, Eilberg said the
proposed regulations
"might allow widespread
evasion of the purpose of

the law." The regulations
are scheduled to go into
effect Jan. 18.
Eilberg called on Secre-
tary of Commerce Juanita
M. Kreps to review the
guidelines before they take
effect.
"As things stand now, the
Department,, in writing
regulations for • Congression-
ally authorized exceptions
to the rules, has turned the
exceptions into the rules,"
Eilberg wrote to Ms. Kreps.
He cited three sections of
the proposed regulations,
'which. he said,. are
"contrary to the clearly
stated intent of Congress
when it enacted the
anti-boycott legislation."
Eilberg said that Congress
sought to prohibit a U.S.
citizen from aiding a
foreign buyer who makes a
purchase based on boycott-
related considerations.
"But the proposed regu-
lations," he said, "appar-
ently would allow a U.S.
citizen to lend invaluable
assistance in the form of
management, procurement,
and other pre-award serv-
ices before - a foreign buyer
makes his purchase."
In addition, Eiberg siad,
Congress exempted from
the anti-boycott law any
U.S. citizen on foreign soil
who imports good "for his
own use."
Eilberg said the regu-
lations proposed by the
Commerce Department de-
fine goods "for his own use"
as goods for manufacturing
other products, and goods
for resale to other persons.

Eilberg also attacked the
proposed regulations for in-
cluding a "risk of loss"
clause, declaring that, un-
der this provision, "a sell-
er's liability for his goods
would not end when he de-
livers his merchandise to a
carrier chosen by the pur-
chaser, as is the case in
normal commercial trans-
actions.

"Instead," the Congress-
man siad, "the seller's lia-
bility would continue until
his goods reached and
passed through customs in a
foreign port of entry. Insist-
ence on such a clause owuld
have the chilling effect of
preventing blacklisted com-
panies from fairly com-
peting for business in the
Arab world," he said.
Eilberg asked the Secre-
tary of Commerce for a
"prompt response in-
dicating the action you in-
tend to take in this matter."

Attorney Plans to Sue Idi Amin

Over Human Rights Violations

NEW YORK—Chicago at-
torney Luis Kutner is plan-
ning to file suit in U.S.
District Court against
Uganda dictator Idi Amin.
Kutner will charge Amin
with civil crimes in behalf
of Ugandan citizens who
have fled to the U.S. He will
employ an untested U.S.
statute that he helped draft
that removes the immunity
of sovereign powers from
prosecution.
Kutner says he would also
like to see a Nuremberg-
style, UN tribunal force
Amin to testify.
"There are rooms full of
books on human rights,"

Kutner said. "There are
conferences after confer-
ences on human rights. All
of that is narcissistic. The
only thing to stop a tyrant
like Amin is to take prag-
matic legal action against
him."
-
Kutner hopes to serve a
summons on Amin through
the Uganda embassy in
Washington or its UN mis-
sion in New York. He says
the U.S. could take sanc-
tions against Amin if he is
convicted by a U.S. court,
and added that the UN has
the power to execute Amin
if he is convicted by a UN
tribunal.

Labor Law Chair at Hebrew U.

NEW YORK—Israeli le-
gal scholars, judges and
lawyers assembled at the
Hebrew University's Facul-
ty of Law on Mount Scopus
in Jerusalem this month for
the inauguration of the
Elias Lieberman Chair in
Labor Law, it was an-
nounced by Charles A. Still-
man, chairman of the New
York Lawyers Division of

the American Friends of the
Hebrew University.
A Russian-born Jew who
immigrated to the United
States in the early years of
this century, Mr. Lieber-
man became an attorney for
the ILGWU (International
Ladies Garment Workers
Union) and championed the
rights of the worker
throughout his long career.

NEW YORK (JTA)—A
four-member delegation" of
the ultra-nationalist Gush
Emunim movement in Is-
rael arrived here last week
to launch a campaign "to
inform and convince the
American people of the
rightful ownership of the
Jewish people to the whole
of the land of Israel."
The four Gush leaders,
Hanan Porath, Zvi slonim,
Mitchell Heifetz and Jacob
Dovev, issued a statement
at a press confernce at the
Roosevelt Hotel welcoming
the "dialogue which recent-
ly developed between Israel
and Egypt," but reiterated
at the same time the Gush's
adamant rejection of and

territorial concessions to ob-
tain peace.

The statement also called
for a large-scale settlement
plan "to retian the integrity
of the land of isreal."
