Prison staff are afraid and angry

prisonWILLEMSTAD - Prison staff will meet again today during working hours. This was also the case yesterday. According to a spokesman, the staff feels unsafe. This was following the arson of a car from one of the guards last week.

The guards also complain about the poor upkeep of the Curacao prison, the SDKK. The barbed wire surrounding the prison is in need of urgent maintenance and some doors in the prison do not close properly.

An initial consultation with the management failed. Today, both parties will continue with their talks.

The staff has not heard from the Minister of Justice yet.
