The Supreme Court Presiding Judge, Cristiano André, Friday in northern Malanje province condemned the aggression of some inmates who have been behind acts of vandalism and brawls in prisons around the country.
The magistrate was speaking during a meeting with inmates of the Malanje Penitentiary, stressing that the brawl among inmates in the said prison, in August this year, destroyed very important equipment required for the functioning of the institution.
Cristiano Andre added on the occasion that the conditions of accommodation, food and security in the prisons were changing for better, and the success of this process required a good behaviour on the part of the inmates and cooperation of the authorities.
The official stressed that the Government was working toward humanising the prison services around the country, for a reeducation and reintegration in the society.
"There are effort being made to improve everyday the conditions of the prisoners across the country," he stated.
On the other hand, the official said the concerns raised by the inmates would be examined with the competent organs of the State for due solutions.
There are currently 939 prisoners registered with the Malanje province prison services. Of that number 690 have been sentenced and 249 are awaiting trial.
