The Human Rights Information & Training Center (HRITC) organized on Thursday in Taiz a workshop on providing legal and psychological help to female prisoners. The initiative of the HRITC is limited in the first phase of the project to the Central Prison in the city and will include other cities in the near future.
“This initiative will help victims of violence and those who have been unable to defend their rights,” said Izzaddin Saeed Al-Asbahi, Chairman of HRITC.
Along with providing them with psychological services next week, the center will be studying prisoners’ cases and coordinating with the authorities concerned to find a way to help them.
