17 gangs operating inside prison walls

Commissioner of Prisons, Dennis Pulchan, says there are seventeen gangs operating inside prison walls.

Commissioner Pulchan says the gangs constitute about two hundred members.

Recently the Anti-Gang Bill was debated in the Senate.

The bill ‘seeks to make provision for the suppression of associations created for unlawful or criminal purposes and for the better protection of the public’.

The Bill also ‘seeks to make it an offence to be a member of a gang, to be in possession of a bullet-proof vest, to participate in, or contribute to, the activities of a gang, to support or invite support for a gang, or to harbour or conceal gang members or recruit persons to a gang’.
