BJMP-8 chaplain says prison cells in E. Visayas needs improvement
TACLOBAN CITY – An official from the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) regional office said that “prison cells” here are not organized as compared to other parts of the country.
BJMP-8 Regional Chaplain Nentor R. Caber in a recent interview admitted that prison cells in the region needs to be improved and rehabilitated.
Dealing on the present situation of the prison cells here, Caber asks all the local chief executives to support the management in addressing this problem.
“Since our prison cells here need repair and improvement, we ask our local chief executives to help us deal on this matter,” Caber said.
The official, on the other hand, revealed that Region 6 has the most beautiful and organized cells nationwide.
Moreover, Caber said that no inmates wanted to be imprisoned lifelong. “Of course, no inmates wanted to stay forever in a place where they only see the four cornered walls.”
Caber discussed that while the BJMP joins on the 18th National Crime Prevention celebration with the theme “Sa Crime prevention, May Magagawa Ako”, he said that every member of the community has a great role to play on keeping their lives safe.
With regards to the safe keeping of the inmates, he pointed out that the management do not allow any media (particularly those who are from the television group), to conduct on camera interviews.
But Caber assured that he would be encouraging all jail wardens in the region to create good media relations. (REY GERILLA GRADO)
