Regional Cooperation Minister Esawi Frej speaks out against a government decision earlier today to weigh cutting off state pensions and other benefits from the families of terrorists.

“You do not harm the benefits of the children of citizens and residents,” Frej tweets.

The cabinet voted to establish a committee to look into the possibility of such a move, which has been proposed in the past but never came to fruition.
