...In­mates are safe - PRO

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

Re­gard­less of all these al­le­ga­tions that have been in­di­cated by the ex-in­mates of the fa­cil­ity, the Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices still in­sist that the safety of the in­mates kept there in en­sures.

This comes af­ter no proper in­ves­ti­ga­tions were con­ducted since this pub­li­ca­tion first pub­lished the story.

Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer Gugulethu Dlamini when asked what the com­mis­sioner gen­eral has done so far to en­sure that the in­mates are not vic­timised in the fa­cil­ity, stated that the in­mates are safe when within the fa­cil­ity.

“The safety of the in­mates lies with the cor­rec­tional of­fi­cers with­out dis­crim­i­na­tion of any kind,” Dlamini re­sponded.

She went on to add that there is a pro­fes­sional way of en­sur­ing that all the voices are heard in this saga, which will not be dis­closed to the me­dia.

“The cri­te­ria we will use in the in­ves­ti­ga­tions to en­sure that fair­ness is prac­tised with­out fear or favour is con­fi­den­tial,” she added.

Dlamini fur­ther re­vealed that the rules gov­ern­ing the cor­rec­tional ser­vice as a whole have amongst oth­ers do­mes­tic rules, re­frain­ing from re­veal­ing the rest.
