Intensive preparations are being made to host the international conference in support of Palestinian and Arab prisoners in Israeli jails, next November, which will be held in the Ministry of Human Rights, said Anouar Gharbi, a presidential adviser in charge of international relations.
The Preparatory Committee for the conference is putting the finishing touches on the invitations that have been extended to many human rights activists and politicians around the world to participate in the defense of the Palestinian prisoners’ just cause, he confirmed.
Gharbi told Quds press that 40 international human rights personalities and political figures confirmed their attendance of the conference, which will be held under official auspices of the Republic’s President Moncef Marzouki.
The conference idea was inspired in light of the Tunisian revolution that erupted for freedom, dignity and the Liberation of Palestine, and also for the defense of the Palestinian prisoners’ issue which is supported by all the Tunisian political elites and human rights activists and supporters of freedom in the world, he added.
He confirmed that 40 international human rights personalities and political figures accepted to participate in the conference, stressing that the Preparatory Committee for the conference is putting the finishing touches on the preparations in general.
We believe that the defense of prisoners is an honor to each Tunisian and even to each free person in the world. The conference does not constitute a burden on our revolution nor on our country, he added.
He affirmed that that delegations of more than thirty countries around the world will take part in the conference that will discuss and activate supporting the prisoners’ steadfastness and help them regain their freedom, on the basis of the International Law.
