Prisons in Tete are holding three times more inmates than their installed capacity, with the provincial director of Justice, Constitutional and Religious Affairs, Elias Moyo, acknowledging the precariousness of the situation
“It’s very worrying in that, just to begin with, there is no space and the cells are overcrowded. People do not sleep properly and the government is worried. We are working with the judiciary, in particular with the courts, to make use of alternatives to prison sentences,” he said.
The Provincial Director of Justice, Constitutional and Religious Affairs in Tete, Elias Moyo, said that the province’s jails now held 1,400 detainees, against the 500 they were designed for.Source: Rádio Moçambique
