Attorney appointed as new Inspector of Prisons

Cabinet has approved the appointment of Attorney Cedric Tyrell Neptune as the new Inspector of Prisons.

Some of his roles will include examining prison offers, staff, and prisoners as well as inquiring in all matters relating to prison.

Last year, the Law Association had expressed concern with the delay in appointing an Inspector of Prisons, after former Inspector Daniel Khan’s term ended in July 2015.

It believed the position was crucial in ensuring the State lives up to its obligations in the prison.

This includes prisoners’ entitlement “to be treated with dignity and in accordance with the prison rules”.
