The committee, which includes several entities including the interior and awqaf ministries, Public Authority for Manpower, the Manpower and Government Restructuring Program and the Public Authority for Applied Education and Training (PAAET), completed all details, said the sources, adding that most specialties will be technical and related to handicrafts, and are equal to a diploma.
They said the release of the inmate who receives the new certificate is conditional to good behavior for several months, adding that inmates who will benefit from this program are those in prison for misdemeanors with short sentences.
The sources said the interior ministry will add its comments on the study and propose its budget, then submit it to the council of ministers for approval. It is expected to go into effect by the middle of next year if approved.
