Representatives of both PLO offices
denounced the league's move as a
"Zionist campaign" to silence their
organization in the United States.
The league's general counsel, Arnold
Foster, said in a letter to Secretary of
State Cyrus R. Vance that the local
PLO representative,nHatim Hussein,
raised funds in a recent appearance at
Oklahoma State University. Husseini
opened the PLO office in Washington a
month ago.
Foster also said the PLO observer
mission attached to the United Nations
sponsored fund-raising events on two
recent occasions in the New York area.
Husseini refused comment on the
specific charges but said the allegation
about his appearance at Oklahoma
State was part of a "Zionist campaign
of slander and lies to try to close down
the office.
"Their name is the Anti-Defamation
League. They shouldn't be defaming
anybody."
Abdul Rabman, the information at-
tache at the PLO mission in New York,
denied the league's allegations.
"This is part of a campaign the
Zionists are waging against the
Palestinian people to discredit their
representatives," Rahman said.
The objective is to prevent "the PLO
from reaching the American public in
order to inform them about the crimes
committed by the fascist government of
Israel in collaboration with the Zionists
in this country."
Foster contended that when Husseini
registered as a foreign agent a month
ago, he did not disclose that he intended
to engage in fund-raising activities
even though "a true and complete
statement" of his functions was
required.
Justice Department officials said
foreign agents are not explicitly
prohibited from engaging in fund
raising. They said Husseini will have an
opportunity to disclose any such ac-
tivities in a supplemental statement
that he will be required to submit later
this year.
