Editorial: Remarkable (Strike at prison)

POSTED: 05/28/12 2:27 PM

There are two versions about the reason for the strike at the Pointe Blanche prison and they don’t match. Given the limited communication coming from the prison management, we tend to believe what the attorney for the Inmates Association told this newspaper.
However, what we believe or don’t believe is not as important as the actual truth. Relatives of the inmates have a right to know what is going on behind those prison walls.
That day is coming because lawsuits have been filed to force a decision about the fate of the six prisoners that have been moved from Pointe Blanche to Simpson Bay and to the police station.
That’s when we will learn more about the prison director’s authority to cancel yesterday’s family visits for what seems to be right now no reason at all.
It is remarkable that exactly a year ago the same thing happened: the prisoners went on strike, and the prison management cancelled the family visits.
