A Palestinian court Sunday dismissed a high-profile corruption case against exiled Gaza strongman Mohammad Dahlan, a defense lawyer told AFP.The court ruled that a 2012 decision to lift Dahlan's parliamentary immunity had not been carried out in line with parliamentary law, legal documents showed.Last month, the Palestinian high court upheld the decree, rejecting an appeal by Dahlan.Dahlan's lawyers have long accused the Palestinian leadership, with President Abbas at its head, of using the courts "for purely political ends".
