Justice for all programme strictly for remand prisoners – Honyenugah

An appeal court judge, Justice C.K. Honyenugah has emphatically stated that the Justice for All Program is well planned in order not to push criminals back onto the streets.

He was reacting to an erroneous public impression that the program will flood the society with unreformed criminals.

According to the appeals court Judge, the exercise is rather intended to decongest the prisons and also to free inmates who should not be in prison.

Justice Honyenugah was speaking at the justice for all program at the Akuse Prison in the Eastern Region where eight out of 23 remand prisoners could not be accounted for.

He said plans are far advanced to introduce a parole system and non-custodial sentencing in Ghana’s prisons.

This he said would make inmates productive and contribute their quota to the socio-economic development of the country.

The next destination for the justice for all program will be at Ho in the Volta region.
