    holding of and sanctioning of

    Hello. I have seen the following sentences.
    1. Decision on holding of persons in temporary custody in aircraft

    2. Decison on sanctioning of administrative violations in field of civil aviations with out minutes
    I don't understand the phrases "
    holding of" and "sanctioning of". I think they should be "holding persons" and "sanctioning administrative violations" because to hold and to sanction are transitive verbs. Am I wrong, please?

    Where did you find these? They are not complete sentences.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”
