Abbas enacts ploy to deceive donor countries

Abbas’ Presidential decree changes PA Ministry of Prisoners’ Affairs to PLO Authority of Prisoners’ Affairs

Now the PA won’t be using US and EU money directly to pay salaries to terrorist prisoners, 
but will use US and EU money indirectly to pay terrorist prisoners, by channeling it through the PLO

Minister Karake:

“[Due to PA’s payment of salaries to prisoners]

there was [international]  pressure

and a kind of war, an intense war,

and monetary and financial threats towards the PA”

[Ajyal radio (independent Palestinian station), Aug. 30, 2014]

PA Government Spokesman:

“[The change] will provide

political and legal cover for this issue.

It eliminates the many arguments

made by many parties, who always try to say

that [foreign] aid money [to the PA]

is going to the prisoners” 

[Official PA TV, June 5, 2014]
