RIYADH — The Human Rights Commission (HRC) emphasized that female inmates at social care centers should not remain in custody after the end of their sentencing period.

It was also called for providing specialized treatment programs for inmates, who suffer from addiction, ever since their arrival in prison and even after the end of their period of sentence.

There should be arrangements to provide treatment for inmates who are suffering from mental disorders, and that is in cooperation with the Ministry of Health, and also for the transfer of chronic and acute cases to mental health hospitals to receive the necessary treatment.

The Commission stressed the need for providing all the shelter home staff with specialized courses in first aid in anticipation of any emergency, as well as increasing the number of technical staff and qualifying them to perform their duties in a professional way.

During its inspection tours of the social care centers for women, the HRC had made a number of observations, including that some inmates were still in the shelters even after completing their period of sentence.
