2 women’s prisons to be renovated, Abu Faour says

The Daily Star 4/11/2011

BEIRUT: Social Affairs Minister Wael Abu Faour announced Thursday that Italian authorities will help carry out renovation projects in the Baabda and Jezzine women’s prisons.

During a visit to Baabda’s women prison, which suffers from overcrowding and other problems, Abu Faour said his ministry will work to improve incarceration conditions, with a special focus on pregnant women and newborns.

“Sooner or later you will be done with your prison sentences and you should meet your children in respectable places,” Abu Faour added.

Separately, families of inmates of Roumieh and other prisons staged a brief midnight protest in Beirut’s southern suburbs Wednesday and warned the government and Parliament against failing to pass a general amnesty.
