First juvenile rehabilitation centre to open soon
The first-ever Juvenile Rehabilitation Centre will operate at the end of this year, says H.E. Toch Channy, Director General of Technical General Department at the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation.
The construction of the center, located in Kandal Stung district of Kandal province, has already been 40 percent completed, continued the director-general, stressing that once opened, prisoners under the age of 18 will be transferred there.
Cambodia currently has 1,800 inmates below 18 years old who stay with other prisoners in prisons across the country.
This center will become another historic achievement to serve the field of social affairs after the rehabilitation center for people with mental disorders and the national center of people with disabilities. AKP
