The Dominica State Prison will receive a face lift in 2017. This was revealed by the Hon Prime Minister, Dr Roosevelt Skerrit, at a press briefing last Friday, January 13.
“The physical state of the state prison is something that we will give some attention this year. The fact is notwithstanding that these people have committed crimes and they have to pay for their crimes as mandated by our laws…they are human beings nonetheless and we have to ensure that they are provided with not five star and three star accommodation but certainly accommodation that is at the level at which humans should be part of,” Hon Skerrit said.
The Dominica State Prison has a population of 208; 205 males and three females.
