Pampanga facility

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga - To further enhance the welfare of at least 706 inmates in the province, the provincial government launched Wednesday the R25 million extension building at the Pampanga Provincial Jail (PPJ).

Governor Lilia G. Pineda said the new building, which had been occupied a week ago, will ensure better accommodation and healthier atmosphere to the more than 700 prisoners, which include 88 women.

"This new building is expected to provide our inmates healthier and better atmosphere while inside the cell... They get sick because their former living quarters were overcrowded. Now, they even sleep in double deck beds made of mahogany wood," said Pineda.

The governor said she invited judges and prosecutors, including Regional Trial Court (RTC) Executive Judge Edgar Chua to inspect the new building to underscore that the intent of the provincial government is to look after the welfare of the prisoners in the province.

She further urged the inmates "to be good, behave well, and be patient."

Pineda also disclosed that the old building, which has a maximum capacity of 200 people, will undergo renovation.
