This article raises the appalling situation of the majority of prisoners who have been given 3 months preventative custody but after more than a year or even much more, the prosecutor has not been able to bring a case against them so they languish in the filthy prisons. it is totally uncivilised. Also it must be remembered that on a per capita basis , the overwhelming number of non American prisoners in the USA prisons are Dominicans. .The DR has nothing to be proud about on the subject of prisons.
