Whose fault is it?

14 Jun

Minivan News reports:

A former member of the parole board has blamed the Department of Penitentiary and Rehabilitation Services (DPRS) for the recent death of an eight-month-old baby, who was beaten to death.

Aminath Eenas told Minivan News today that one of the suspects, the baby’s mother, Nooruzaadha Ali, 28, from Addu atoll Hithadhoo, had been serving a sentence for drug abuse when she was given leave to give birth.

Although her request for parole was rejected in 2008 because she was a repeat offender, Nooruzaadha was eventually given parole. The board decided she would continue her jail sentence a month after giving birth and the baby would be taken into care at the children’s home on Villingili.

But, said Eenas, Nooruzaadha’s sentence was not enforced by DPRS.

Eenas added she was “socially, mentally and physically” unfit. DPRS Director General Mohamed Rasheed said Nooruzaadha was released for six months to breast feed and care for the baby. At the end of the period, she was not returned to prison due to overcrowding.

Is it our fault the prison is overcrowded? Is it our fault there is no money to renovate? Or is it our fault that the crime rates are increasing?” he said.

    @anon 15/6/09 02:11It is quite common to be attacked in person like this. But I would like to let you know that I have very good reasons to fight for Children's rights. I did wrong to children when I didn't know what children's rights were. That is why I started to contribute my share for the protection of Children's Rights in 1992. I am sorry you had to say, "… I would really be cautious witth you."

    Mothers are guardians of the values of the society.Maldivians need to to be taught what motherhood means. Behind every drug addict is a dysfunctional family due to a bad mother.tell me a drug addict a good mother? there won't be any..

    I have heard that a lot of anonymous bloggers are child abusers. Specially under the guise of protect children. So i would really be cautious with you.
