May 20, 2014 9:27 P.M. (Updated: May 22, 2014 2:57 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A high-ranking official told Ma’an that the Ramallah reconciliation court sentenced former Fatah leader Mohammad Dahlan to two years in prison for libel, slander, and defamation.

The source, who requested anonymity, said that Dahlan was charged with defaming legal institutions and state agencies but did not elaborate on the details of the alleged crimes.

The source added that Dahlan has 10 days to appeal the ruling, and if he does not it will be carried out.

However, Dahlan has been living outside Palestine since 2011 when he was ousted from Fatah.
