Date: 25.5.14 Source: comptroller report

from the report:

     "The Minister of Social Services and the Director General of the ministry, the Ministry of Justice and the Ministry of Finance if need be, must make the necessary changes to the welfare policy in order to ensure that it will meet the requirements of the law regarding certain groups of foreigners (abused women who are not in shelters, those who were tortured on their way to Israel whose mental and physical condition was not evaluated and foreigners acknowledged as victims of trafficking in persons for whom no room in shelters was found) and if necessary provide reasonable means to implement the policy. The Ministry of Social Services must also formulate a plan of action derived from the policy (regarding actions dependent on other ministries’ action see below). If any obstacles are encountered in the performance of these actions, the Minister of Social Services should present them to the government, and raise them again until a solution is found."
