Assistant Justice Minister for the Bureau of Corrections and Rehabilitation (BCR), Eddie Trawally, has disclosed that two officers of the Bureau have been arrested for conveying narcotic drugs to prison facilities.
Minister Trawally stated that the two individuals identified as Botue Johnson and Titus King were dealing in narcotic drugs at the Monrovia Central Prison and other prison facilities.
The Assistant Minister made the disclosure at a press conference held at the Ministry of Justice in the Monrovia suburb of Sinkor recently.
He noted that the BCR is responsible to rehabilitate inmates who are social dropouts, needing rehabilitation and re-integration into Liberian society.
According to him, the BCR also noticed that some relatives have been conveying narcotic drugs to inmates and warned them to desist as this is against the law.
Minister Trawally maintained that the quantity of narcotic drugs discovered at the Monrovia Central Prison is alarming, and that the BCR will do everything possible to arrest the perpetrators.
He said some of the drug transactions were done by some BCR officers, noting that they will be arrested as mechanisms have been put in place to ensure that the prison facilities are cleared of drugs.
Minister Trawally has observed that if Liberia should move forward in the process of rebuilding a harmonious society, the use of narcotic drugs should be curtailed.
Meanwhile, Assistant Minister Trawally has disclosed that the BCR has initiated the probation of inmates from the Monrovia Central Prison into the community service program.
