PA pays 5 million shekels per month to 4,000 released prisoners
PA Minister of Prisoners' Affairs Issa Karake:
"Every Palestinian prisoner who serves 5 years or more [in prison] receives what is called a partial salary or a partial allowance. It starts at 900 shekels and 100 shekels are added for each additional year in prison... If the prisoner does not work in the PA he receives this salary. A female prisoner [receives this] if she served 3 years, not 5, because female prisoners have special circumstances. This is permanent. Each month, approximately 5 million shekels are paid to around 4,000 released prisoners who receive this salary each month."
