Palestinians: Terrorism

Question for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

UIN HL13716, tabled on 25 February 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of reports that the Palestinian Authority contributed to the salaries of prisoners convicted of terrorists offences in 2020.

Answered on

We are clear that the prisoner payments system should be reformed. The UK has raised the need for reform at the highest levels of the Palestinian Authority (PA), including when the Foreign Secretary visited the Occupied Palestinian Territories in August 2020.
