Fatah condemns Israeli TV report on member corruption

Nov. 9, 2010 2:52 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 9, 2010 11:53 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Fatah's Central Committee on Monday denounced a report by Israel's Channel 10 accusing Fatah leader Ahmad Qrei'a of embezzlement.

The committee said the TV report was fabricated and groundless.

The report questioned the relationship between President Mahmoud Abbas and Qrei'a, in particular why Abbas had excluded the former prime minister from top positions.

Further, the report said the Palestinian Authority had notified Qrei'a that it was conducting an investigation into his finances, due to suspicions that he embezzled $700 million while in public office.

Qrei'a was recently prevented from crossing Allenby Bridge into Jordan in his car. Israeli officials at the border crossing said only the president and Prime Minister Salam Fayyad could cross the bridge in government cars.

A PA statement said the "government condemned the decision," however the Channel 10 report said the PA had agreed with Israel not to let Qrei'a cross the border in his car.
