KUWAIT CITY, Feb 8: Public Relations and Security Media Department of Ministry of Interior affirmed that the women’s prison is managed based on an improved system whereby a variety of services are provided to the inmates. In a press statement issued by the ministry, the department stressed that inmates who behave uncontrollably are dealt with firmly based on legal procedures. According to Assistant Undersecretary for Correctional Institutions Major General Khalid Al-Dayyen, jail supervisors are appointed to control the situation in prisons and prevent chaos. They deal with violent inmates in a specific manner and have to be cautious about any unexpected reactions. Regarding the incident of aggression between an inmate and jail supervisors, the department explained that the inmate responsible for the incident came to the prison in 2014 to spend 20 years in prison after she was convicted of using drugs and other charges.

During her stay in the prison, she has been violent towards other inmates and employees of the prison such that a number of cases were filed against her for issues such as theft, attacking an employee using a fire extinguisher, attempting to commit suicide and damaging a public property. Meanwhile, earlier on Sunday, a female prisoner identified as Zainab incited uproar among the inmates of Central Prison by using a fire extinguisher inside the cell during a fight with another inmate, says Al-Seyassah. A video posted on social media shows several female inmates of the Central Prison running out of their cell, in the absence of prison wardens, and shouting that “Zainab is spraying fire extinguisher on us”. A security source said the prison’s management will take necessary action against those who incited chaos in the cell. Investigation is in progress to know how the mobile phone used in recording the incident was passed to the cell.
