Women for Women in Jail – First visit in Negombo’s Women remand prison

25/03/2017

Two weeks after receiving the approval of the Hon. Minister of Prisons Reform for this project, A.G.S.E.P. has officially took first actions by visiting Negombo’s Women Remand Prison (Negombo as a first starting point because it is the second biggest prison in Sri Lanka and close to Marawila) with the support of the Superintendent of Prisons. First conversations were conducted with the female inmates finding cases that would meet the requirements. Next step will be collecting the correspondent case files of the women examining the cases further and picking cases in collaboration with the Hon. Minister.
