Proposed amendments to Prisons Act support right to contact outside world

Transitional Justice Minister Ibrahim al-Heneidi said the Legislative Reform Committee has discussed amendments to the Prisons Act that support the right of a prisoner to contact the outside world.
Article 38, which gives a prisoner the right to send letters and receive visits, would be amended to include the right to make telephone calls as well, which would also be applicable to detainees of pending investigations.
