Based on section
251 of title
22, U.S.C., 1940 ed., Foreign Relations and Intercourse (R.S. 4062).
The punishment provision was rewritten to permit the alternative of a fine of not more than $2,000 or imprisonment, or both, instead of imprisonment and fine “at the discretion of the court”, to conform with other sections embracing offenses of comparable gravity.
Minor changes were made in phraseology.
1994—Pub. L. 103–322, § 330016(1)(I), which directed the amendment of this section by substituting “under this title” for “not more than $2,000”, could not be executed because the words “not more than $2,000” did not appear in text subsequent to amendment by Pub. L. 103–322, § 130009(a)(3). See below.
Pub. L. 103–322, § 130009(a)(3), substituted “under this title, imprisoned not more than 10 years” for “not more than $2,000 or imprisoned not more than three years”.
