HRC Denied Access to Monitor Central Prisons


[Concord]If section 9(1) of the Human Rights Commission of Sierra Leone Act No 9 of 2004 is anything to be respected, then the Director of Prisons Sanpha Bilo Kamara and team are in complete breach by refusing staff of the Human Rights Commission(HRCSL) access to the Pademba road prison for the sixth time. In a quest to fulfill their statutory mandate, HRCSL requested permission from the Director of Prisons for a monitoring visit to the maximum prisons to ascertain their compliance with human rights standard.
