TUNISIA, (PIC)– The General Director of the Tunisian Institute of Strategic Studies, Tareq Kahlaoui, confirmed that all arrangements relating to the International Conference on Palestinian prisoners have been completed, pointing out that the conference will be opened by the Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki on Saturday.

Kahlaoui confirmed to Quds Press that all the preparations for the International Conference for the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails have been completed, noting that the guests began arriving on Thursday and Friday.

The Tunisian President Dr. Moncef Marzouki will open the Conference on Saturday, in the presence of a number of Palestinian and Arab activists and international specialists in international law and the media, he added.

The conference, which will be held on Saturday and Sunday, will focus on the prisoners’ issue on the legal and media sides.

Kahlaoui pointed out that the conference depends on civil society organizations, insisting on its important role in achieving the conference’s objectives and functions.

The conference aims to set up a monitoring committee for the prisoners’ issue, including Palestinian, Arab, and international lawyers and journalists. We will seek to make the committee’s headquarters in Tunisia or at least a part of it to be close to the presidency and to facilitate communication with them in this regard, he explained.

Kahlaoui stated that the conference will be held under the auspices of the Tunisian Presidency in light of the Tunisian consensus on the fairness of the prisoners’ issue and to gain the international legal support.
