At least 12,000 prisoners jailed over minor crimes are stuck in prison unable to pay the fines in order to be released or because the government analyst report has not been obtained in order to clear some of them of their alleged crimes.

According to the prisons department 10,000 people are still in prison as they are unable to pay the fines imposed by the Court to be released while at least two thousand others are still awaiting the government analyst department report to clear them from all charges.

    If their offneces are minor they should be used for the development of the North & East and for urgent agricultural projects, earn their pay and then pay for their freedom. If they were good at work they could continue in the development and agricultural projects. Use the man power 12,000 if not wasted.

    It is better to keep the criminals behind bars, rather than release them on bail, since many of them will repeat their crimes.

    With the quality of the full board package and the facilities they have and the cost of living they may opt to stay inside and pay a small amount to the government.
