EU funds rehabilitation of Jamaican Prisoners

Friday, October 11, 2013

The Delegation of the European Union (EU) has provided J$52 million for the implementation of three projects concerning the rehabilitation of inmates in the correctional system, including juveniles, and addressing legal as well as human rights issues.

?Stand Up for Jamaica? has received J$10 million to help with the rehabilitation of inmates while ?Jamaicans for Justice? will execute the Combatting Impunity By Strengthening Legal Support project for J$21 million dollars. The British Council has also benefited from J$21 million dollars.

The funds will be used to implement a project to strengthen the role played by civil society in Jamaica in promoting human rights and democracy.

Chief Justice, Zaila McCalla has said that rehabilitation, legal support, and the involvement of civil society, are useful tools that must be employed to strengthen the justice system.
