Company Fined for Boycott Role

WASHINGTON (JTA) —
A Swiss subsidiary of a
large American corporation
has been ordered to pay
$20,000 to the U.S. Treas-

New Director

ury as a "civil penalty" for
two alleged violations of
U.S. laws aimed at the Arab
boycott of Israel.
The Commerce Depart-
ment announced that in ac-
cordance with a "consent
agreement" it has ordered
Finagrain Compagnie
Comerciale Agricole et
Financiere S.A. (Finag-
rain), a Swiss subsidiary of
Continental Grain Co., to
pay $20,000, the "maximum
civil penalty allowable
under the law for two viola-
tions," a Department
statement said.
The penalty order, signed
by Stanley Marcuss, senior
deputy assistant secretary
for industry and trade, also
requires Finagrain to take
"internal corrective meas-
ures to ensure its future
compliance with the anti-
boycott law and to report to
the Commerce Department
within six months on its ac-
tions."
The two alleged viola-

tions involved a shipment to
Iraq in which Finagrain
certified that it was not
affiliated with any firm
blacklisted by Iraq as part of
its boycott of Israel and that
the shipment was not of Is-
raeli origin. The anti-
boycott law prohibits
Americans from furnishing
information about business
relationships with boycot-
ted or blacklisted persons
related to intent to support
an unsanctioned foreign
boycott.
According to the penalty
agreement entered into by
the Swiss firm, one of its
corrective measures is to
have prompt reporting to its
appropriate management
all boycott-related requests.
This includes "all Finagrain
transactions involving cus-
tomers- in the countries
identified on the U.S.
Treasury Department list of
countries deemed to be
cooperating with the Arab
boycott of Israel."

Mapam to Allow Attendance
at Discussion of PLO in D.C.

TEL AVIV (JTA) —
Mapam's veteran leaders
Meir Yaari and Yaacov
Hazan found themselves in
the minority last week
when the Mapam
Secretariat voted in favor of
allowing its two Knesset
members, Chaika
Grossman and Naftali
Feder, to participate in a
symposium organized by
New Outlook magazine to
take place in Washington in
October.
At a meeting of the
Secretariat earlier, Yaari
and Hazan succeeded in
preventing a resolution
from being passed approv-
ing their Knesseters' par-
ticipation despite the fact
that the general feeling was
for participation in the
symposium.
In last week's session,
Hazan was absent and
Yaari left before the vote
was taken. The sole holdout
was Knesseter Omri Ron.
However, the
Secretariat laid down
specific conditions for
participation: that there
be no representatives of
the Palestine Liberation
Organization at the sym-
posium, that no resolu-
tions be adopted at the
conference, and that
there be a wide range of
opinions.
A great deal of heat was
generated in Mapam and in
the Labor Party over the
symposium entitled "The
Middle East Between War.
and Peace."

The Labor Party Bureau,
the highest decision-
making body of the party,
went on record as opposing
the participation of its
Knesseters who were in-
vited to take part in the
symposium but did not offi-
cially forbid their participa-
tion. Party officials felt that
the symposium would not be
one-sidedly in favor of the
Palestinians.
New Outlook editorial
board members said, how-
ever, that the symposium
would be open to a wide
range of views.
