TO err is human.
This is a reminder to all Barbadians from Minister of Home Affairs, Edmund Hinkson, as he made a call for ex-offenders to be given a second chance when they re-enter the society having served their time in jail.
Delivering remarks at a service held to celebrate the 12th anniversary of the Barbados Prison Service yesterday, Minister Hinkson made a call for Corporate Barbados to come on board, while stressing that Government also has a role to play in this equation.
He noted that this would coincide with the Prison Service’s anniversary celebrations, “Breaking Down Barriers. Fostering Relationships”.
“We as a Government believe that a concerted effort must be made to break down any barriers for inmates’ rehabilitation and their successful reintegration into society.
