Report No. 78
1.22. Working Groups on Prisons.-
In 1972-1973, the Working Group on Prisons gave a comprehensive Report on the subject of prison administration. The Working Group made the following comments in its Report1:
"The prison administration in the country is generally in a depressing state. Most prison buildings are old and ill-equipped and many prisons are heavily overcrowded. Convicts and under-trials are lodged in the same institutions throughout; the adults, adolescents, juveniles, women and lunatics are also generally confined in common institutions and there is a serious lack of separate institutions for these various categories of prisoners".
