France: Court fines pro-Palestinian group for SodaStream boycott campaign

A Paris court fined a pro-Palestinian group for its campaign to boycott the products of the Israeli SodaStream company.

Last week, the Tribunal for Grand Instances fined the France Palestine Solidarity Association about $9,000. The court, which was ruling on a lawsuit brought by SodaStream’s representative in France, also ordered the group to remove boycott calls from its website against the home soda maker and its agents.

The campaign violated French law, the court ruled, because it falsely claimed the company was deceiving customers and was guilty of fraud, read the 10-page ruling, which was obtained by JTA.
