Facilities neglected, says A-G

THE inmates at the Ba Corrections Centre will now have access to a $674,000 multipurpose facility that comes with a dining hall and a kitchen.

The new facility funded by Government was commissioned yesterday by Minister for Justice and Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

He said the new establishment contributed to Government's efforts to improve Fiji's Corrections Service infrastructure.

Corrections Commissioner Francis Kean said the former structure was damaged during Tropical Cyclone Winston.

"This capital project is part of our rehabilitation works undertaken by Government," he said.

"We are grateful to Government for the funding that they have provided to complete this project, which I'm sure the inmates will enjoy.

"It's a modern facility and it will service not only our staff but also for our inmates who will undergo rehabilitation programs that will be delivered as part of their stay with us.

"At the moment we have 37 inmates here at the Ba Corrections Centre and they are managed by an Officer in Charge and the team in Ba and I believe they are being looked after well."
