Monrovia Central Prison Rejects Admission of Prisoners with Manor Crimes Due to Unprecedented Challenges
The Monrovia Central Prison Superintendent Varney Lake has shut down the prison facility thereby denying admission of prisoners with Minor Crimes.
Superintendent Lake's action is triggered by the following including the shortage of food, lack of medical supplies, and toiletry, a disgraceful and embarrassing situation according to Superintendent Lake.
He told reporters that his decision is aimed at drawing the National Government's attention towards what many have termed as a terribly alarming situation that has engulfed the Prison Compound.
According to him, there could be a possible prison break if the matter is not handled by the National Government with speedy care.
This act is similar to what was done last year by Superintendent Lake during the terrible outbreak of a strange disease that led to the deaths of many prisoners, thus shutting down the prison gates to the entry of minor crime admission aside from State Crimes.
The Monrovia Central Prison commonly known as (South Breach) still has over 1,400 inmates which is beyond 3 times the original capacity that the prison should accept.
The Monrovia Central Prison was built to capacitate only 375 inmates but the number has tripled.
