     “[PA] Minister of Prisoners’ [Affairs] Issa Karake disclosed that the compilation of regulations approved by the government over the last four years -- the most recent being a regulation concerning released prisoners -- that constitute the body of implementing regulations for the 2004 Prisoners Law, as well as the law that amended it [the 2004 law] and was approved on August 1, 2013, were completed according to legal principles and procedures and will be implemented according to the financial capabilities of the [Palestinian] Authority. Karake noted that caring for prisoners and their families is a top priority in the Ministry of Prisoners’ [Affairs] and in the government, in spite of the financial and economic difficulties they face. He added that in spite of the present challenges, important interest in the prisoners' situation has been developing, and he referred to a proposal to be presented to the government regarding [the establishment of] a fund aimed at obtaining assistance for prisoners and their families. […]
Karake was speaking during his visit with a number of families of veteran prisoners in the village of Qatanna, in the Jerusalem district. […]
