Correctional Services Minister Sibusiso
Ndebele has stressed that riots by inmates in correctional centres will not be tolerated.
Spokesperson Logan Maistry said whilst the Department
of Correctional Services is fully committed to the human treatment of every detainee,
acts of riots by inmates at correctional centres are not acceptable and will be
dealt with firmly.
Maistry adds that the rehabilitation of
offenders and secure, safe and orderly custody are two sides of the same coin.
Maistry said the balance between security,
control and justice is paramount.
