The Paris Commerce Tribunal said the decision by Coges Events to ban 74 Israeli exhibitors from Eurosatory was “discriminatory,” said the lawyer, Patrick Klugman.

Coges Events said last month that the ban was ordered by the French government. No explanation was provided.

The defense fair is being held from June 17 to 21 at fairgrounds close to the main Paris international airport.

In response to the ban, the deputy mayor of Jerusalem, Arieh King, asked that rubbish collectors bypass the French consulate, though a City Hall statement said the request would not be implemented.
