Nepal's prisons condition

Posted by Anup Baral December 07, 2016 :
Experts have urged the government of Nepal to upgrade prison cell and invest in rehabilitation programs for inmates in Nepal, as the conditions of thousands of prisoners in the country have deteriorated. "Detention facilities in Nepal do not meet basic safety standards. If there is an earthquake, most prisons will collapse," Gobinda Mani Bhurtel, chief of the Central Jail in Kathmandu said in an exclusive interview with Xinhua over the weekend. Representatives from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Nepal (OHCHR-Nepal) have pointed out the inhuman conditions inside detention cells where both the inmates and prison personnel have to cope up on a daily basis.
