Governor asks released prisoners to serve country, nation

ZARANJ (Pajhwok): The released inmates in southwestern Nimroz province on Wednesday complained about lack of facilities in the prison.

As many as 19 prisoners were freed and some were given commutation in their punishment in compliance with the presidential decree, Governor Eng. Mohammad Sami said.

He asked the released prisoners to spend a lawful life and stay away from crimes and other anti-state activities. He hoped the freed inmates had learned the lesson and would not commit crimes in the future.

Fahim, a released prisoner, said the jail was a learning place for them and it was important that criminals should be brought here for punishment.

He was arrested said two and a half year ago over charges of crime and now he was very happy about his release.

Fahim, however, said the environmentinfo-icon of jail was not good and 10 people stayed in a room where five people should have stayed.

A jail official said that 10 acres of land was allocated for the construction of new prison, but the non availability of funds halted the construction.
