It’s not just about the prisoners
“I call on the Prime Minister now to take a personal interest in the matter. In the immediate term, we must find a solution to the overcrowding in prison, so as to curb the spread of Covid19 among inmates. This includes considering community sentences or parole for those with light offences.
If there is anything that we are learning from Covid-19, it is that we are all equal before it, and we are susceptible to it; and limiting its spread anywhere is the best thing to do for the sake of every one of us.”
