Jails to be turned into correction centers: Home minister

Home Minister Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal today said the prisons will be turned into correction centres to rehabilitate prisoners back to normal life in line with the direction of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina.

Quoting the prime minister saying "Prisons will be correction centres", he said the Department of Prisons has taken pragmatic steps to bring back the prisoners to normal life in line with the directions of the prime minister.

The minister said this while distributing livelihood materials among trained prisoners at a programme in the city's Kara Convention Center as the chief guest.

Asaduzzaman Khan Kamal said the present government is going to enact "Bangladesh Prisons and Correctional Services Act" through the Department of Prisons and the Inter-Ministerial Committee to enact modern and timely laws by amending the existing Prisons Act.
