Tuesday, May 21, 2002 - Inmates of the soon to be commissioned state of the art Bordelais Correctional Facility will have their educational needs well attended to. The management team of the Logos 2, a cruising book vessel now berthed at Pointe Seraphine, last Friday May 17, 2002, donated a quantity of reading material to the Minister for Home Affairs and Gender Relations, Honourable Sarah Flood Beaubrun to be used as resource material by the inmates.

“This time on your visit you came to our prisons and you did some work with our inmates and we are very happy about that and we’re even happier now that you have agreed to make this donation to us. It is important because our ministry and our government, in our new thrust at correction, firmly believe that a correctional facilitiy should not only be a holding pen for prisoners but that it should be a learning centre and I believe that with this small gesture here, you are really giving an example to the Saint Lucian public,” Minister Flood Beaubrun told the Logos 2 crew.

The Minister also made a plea to other corporate citizens to follow in the footsteps of the Logos 2 team to ensure a well stocked library at the new Correctional Facility.

Prison officials believe that during the rehabilitation period of inmates, education and treatment are essential to their overall development.
