MANDERA (Somalilandsun) – The penitentiary system has been changed from a punitive one to correction based.
This was revealed by the national custodial corps commander Mohamed Hussein Farah Hirane during the opening of a prisoners training workshop at Mandera prison which is the largest penitentiary in the country.
The commander said that from now henceforth prisoners will no longer sit idle in their cells only to be released without any skills, Said he, "All long service prisoners will start getting technical training of one sort or another in national prisons"
Commander Hirane informed that for 2 decades prisoners have been a baggage to the central authorities for their non-production not to mention that they were released back to society more hardened in their criminal activities that during arrest.
He said that the state was one when punitive action on prisoners was availed by the custodial corps through locking them up but this is to change thus correctional where the prisoners will receive skills training that will benefit the corps during their imprisonment and benefit them and society on their release.
According to the Mandera prisons commander Muse Abokor Qorsheyl the workshop was made possible through partnership with Yurido organization which he thanked for assistance in making imprisonment corrective rather than punitive.
