‎“MOTION BY MR. VAN DER STAAIJ (MP) AND MR. VOORDEWIND (MP)‎
Presented [in Dutch Parliament] Nov. 27, 2013‎

‎“The [Dutch] parliament… noting that since 2011 the Palestinian Authority has been giving money to ‎convicted Palestinians in Israeli prisons (i.e., Palestinians convicted of terror offenses); whereas each ‎‎[prisoner] can count on a monthly payment of € 282 for a sentence of less than three years, rising to € ‎‎2,419 if convicted for a sentence of more than 30 years; noting that those punished in the highest [salary] ‎category include those responsible for terrorist attacks in which innocent children, women and men have ‎been killed, [the Dutch parliament] calls on the [Dutch] Government in its bilateral contacts with the ‎Palestinian Authority to demand it stop this support as it can be interpreted as encouragement for crime, ‎and proceeds to the order of the day.‎
Van der Staaij, Voordewind.”‎
