Guyana to review prison conditions

A comprehensive nationwide prison survey is expected to begin in Guyana in September with the aim of designing rehabilitation and social reintegration services for prison inmates.

The survey will be funded by the Inter-American Development Bank to the value of 2.3 million US dollars through the Citizen Security Strengthening Programme.

The appraisal is part of the third component of the CSSP’s five-year programme. Project Manager of CSSP, Clement Henry says the aim of the survey is to capture information on the experiences of inmates’ lives prior to incarceration, during imprisonment, and those who are repeat offenders.
