Improving Timor-Leste's prison system pt.1

Prisons are a vital part of the entire justice system. Development of operational capacity in prisons is crucial in order to ensure that Timor-Leste's prisons meet international standards. This includes improving the infrastructure as well as building the capacity of prison staff, managers and prisoners. The Government, together with UNDP and UNMIT, are currently working together to improve the prison system in Timor-Leste to meet the international standards. What improvements to the prison system have so far been been achieved? Why is it important to improve the prison system? What is the function of prisons? This week's feature focuses on the changes that Timor-Leste's prison infrastructure has undergone.
