What is the Prison Council?

The committee’s responsibilities include but are not limited to:

1. Allocating funds of the Warchest Program to PP/POWs.
2. Allocating Emergency Funds from the Warchest Program.
3. Voting on policy and proposals of the Federation.
4. Confirming the legitimacy of prisoners claiming PP/POW status.
