    The Immigration Detention Centre has been expanded, using a section of the Eastern Correction and Rehabilitation Centre in Santa Rosa.

    The facility is ready to hold persons detained by immigration officials, and inspections revealed that it has the necessary security requirements.

    The ECRC has the capacity to accommodate up to 150 persons and will complement the existing Immigration Detention Centre in Aripo.

    This latest facility is expected to become fully operational in the next two weeks.
