After serving a 30-day sentence at her majesty’s prison on conviction of use of obscene language and assault, one man is calling on the relevant authorities to look into the treatment and care of inmates.
The former inmate of the Richmond Hill Prison is concerned that the treatment offered at the institution should be investigated, as some practices pose a threat to the inmates’ health and well-being.
Speaking with GBN News, he said the inmates are forced to eat food prepared among rodents and pests, and drink contaminated water.
The ex-prisoner who prefers not to be named, said while little dialogue was held with prison officials during his stay at the prison, he is now calling on other relevant authorities to look into these practices, to encourage a healthier prison system.
Meanwhile, the Acting commissioner of prison, John Mitchell told our news desk that there is no pest or rodent issue at the prison and measures are taken in the event of an infestation.
He further said that the water system at Her Majesty’s Prison is the same water system servicing the entire Morne Jaloux area.
