Judge visits Beon jail facilities

MADANG’S resident judge Justice David Cannings visited Beon jail at the weekend. The purpose of the visit was to see the living conditions for four of the 14 inmates accused in the BSP robbery trial.
During the visit he also took time out to have a look at the houses some of the CS officers are living in. Justice Cannings (who is pictured third from left) was told that about 15 officers were living in bush material homes.
He was told that these houses had been built by the inmates and the one in which he is pictured outside belonged to a corporal.
He learned many high ranking officers on site were also forced to live in these bush material and semi-permanent homes due to the unavailability of proper houses at the prison grounds.
