MOPT donates tablets to Guyana Prison Service

The Ministry of Public Telecommunications, on April 9 donated 30 tablets to Mr. Gladwin Samuels, Director of Prisons on the behalf of the Guyana Prison Service. The donation is intended to aid in more accessible communication between prisoners and their families during the Coronavirus pandemic. In recent times, visits to prisoners by family members have been suspended as a result of the threat of COVID-19. The donation of tablets will now allow prisoners to contact family members via video conferencing using the free government Wi-Fi that is already in place at the prisons.
More than a year ago, the Government installed internet at the prisons in Camp Street, New Amsterdam, Lusignan holding Bay and Mazaruni. The initiative was part of the overall goal of providing internet to government ministries and agencies to enhance operations and communications between locations.
