PHILIPSBURG–The lack of prison cells and the poor quality of prison life in St. Maarten were discussed between the St. Maarten Progress Committee, the Law Enforcement Council, the Pointe Blanche Prison supervisory board and the Prosecutor’s Office, during a meeting on Tuesday, October 29.
St. Maarten needs a proper prison with enough cells to ensure safety, said the group on Tuesday. “Criminals belong in jail, not on the streets,” they said.
The group will meet on a regular basis to remain informed and share developments, said the Prosecutor’s Office in a press release.
