Four Palestinian banks refuse to transfer the salaries of more than 150 terrorists

Headline: “Even though the [PA] Ministry of Finance transferred them: Four banks have not transferred the prisoners’ salaries”

 

 

 

 

“Director of [PLO] Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs Qadri Abu Bakr said today, Sunday [July 5, 2020], that four banks have not transferred the salaries of more than 150 relatives of prisoners.

 

Abu Bakr added in a phone conversation with [the official PA news agency] WAFA that the Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs has received phone calls from prisoners’ relatives who reported that four banks have not transferred the salaries of their imprisoned sons.

 

He confirmed that the [PA] Ministry of Finance transferred all the prisoners’ salaries to their bank accounts on the date of the salary payment, but some of the banks did not implement the decision to continue paying these salaries.

 

Abu Bakr explained that the PA is monitoring the matter with the [PA] Prime Minister’s Office and the [PA] Monetary Authority in order to resolve this problem as soon as possible, and to force the banks to transfer the prisoners’ salaries until the establishment of the banking institution for the prisoners and Martyrs.

 

Abu Bakr demanded that all the banks transfer the prisoners’ salaries and not suspend any account or ATM card.He also said that non-payment of the prisoners’ salaries constitutes a violation of the instructions of the Monetary Authority and the [PA] government, and contradicts the agreement that was achieved in the past.”
