Oderbrecht: Same conditions for all inmates

The Board of Jails said that Odebrecht inmates should be treated strictly by the law and criticized any special privileges that they may be afforded. “It is the duty of the Attorney General Office to guarantee the continuity of the New Penitenciary Model and its fundamental base that is that conditions are the same for all the inmates”. The board called for the group of those accused in the Odebrecht scandal be provided with all the necessary measures to guarantee their safety, physical integrity and human dignity.

The media has carried reports of special preparation of cells for the accused in the Odebrecht scandal, with comforts such as new beds and furnishings, air conditioning, new tiles in bathrooms, among other renovations.

Members of the board are Archbishop of Santo Domingo Francisco Ozoria, priest Aristides Jiménez Richardson; businessmen Abraham Selman Hasbún and José Luis Corripio; lawyer Elías Rodríguez Rodríguez, and journalist Luis Eduardo (Huchi) Lora.

The Board said it trusts the government will follow through with its commitment to provide the resources to build the necessary centers to house the 9,000 inmates at the La Victoria jail. The move is important step to complete the jail reforms, where advances in human rights have served for recognition by the United Nations and the international community in general, states the press release.
