The Public Relations Officer of the Nsawam Medium Security Prison and the Deputy Superintendent of Prisons, Adamu Abdul Latif has appealed to the President of the Republic of Ghana, H.E Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo Addo to grant amnesty to aged prisoners who are suffering from chronic diseases.
DSP Abdul Latif said; “Those who have chronic diseases suffer most and we have people in custody who are battling with chronic diseases such as hypertension and so if some kind of mercy is shown, I think it will help. Even if we record a case, we can better handle it.”
He also urged other benevolent organizations to come to the aid of the prisoners while he commended the POS Foundation for their support.
“We express our profound gratitude to POS Foundation for their kind gesture to the Ghana Prison Service during the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We assure the POS Foundation that the items being donated will be channeled to the purpose that they donated the items as we are really in need of the items. Prison is an institution where people visit day in day out including officers. We urge the general public to continue supporting us’” he added.
