Mini-gym to rise inside Tacloban City Jail
TACLOBAN CITY – A P4.8 million mini gymnasium project of the city government here will be started soon that will benefit both the inmates and the jail officers of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology Tacloban City Jail (BJMP-TCJ).
Engr. Emmanuel Casal, executive assistant responsible for special projects of the city government, revealed in an interview that the 4.8 million mini-gymnasium project of the city government to be built inside the compound of the City Jail is set to start either last week of March or early of April this year.
According to Engr. Casal, they are now on the stage of final planning as to the design of the mini gymnasium that would be built within the jail premises.
Casal pointed out that the realization of the above-mentioned project is made possible through the efforts exerted by the chief executive of Tacloban, Mayor Alfred S. Romualdez.
Meanwhile, in a separate interview with City Jail Warden Ramil Vestra, he said that it is an honour and privilege for the BJMP-TCJ to be a recipient of such structure that could be used by the inmates and personnel for physical exercises and other activities.
The jail warden said that there is a basketball court inside their compound, but the inmates clamour for one with roof as it is so hot to play under the sun.
According to Vestra, with the project, the inmates could already play basketball anytime they wish.
“Inmates may play comfortably anytime during the morning, noon, or afternoon as they would be protected against the heat of the sun and rain,” he disclosed. (REY GERILLA GRADO)
