“They will learn about basic prison services, the philosophy and treatment of prisoners, including supervisory management, basic rights of inmates and conflict resolution,” said UNMISS Corrections and Advisory Section Officer Ryan Phillips.

Acting Director of Warrap State Prison Service Lt-Col Michael Malou Makuei urged participants to actively partake in the course, which would benefit them and the state.

This course is all about general management,” he said. “It is our duty to correct inmates to become good persons and this course is an opportunity for you.”

UNMISS Warrap State Coordinator Abraham Onifade said the mission’s aim was to support rule of law.


“Put your attention into this training…you will learn a lot from this workshop.”

UNMISS also launched a similar two-week training in supervisory management in Aweil, Northern Bahr El-Ghazal State.

State Prisons Director Major General Paul Nyon Atem urged the 20 service officers from Aweil Central Prison and the state’s counties who are participating in the course to use it to improve service delivery.

“Our objective is to give you appropriate knowledge and skills so that when we are retired you will remain resourceful personnel,” Gen. Atem said.

“Take it (the course) seriously. Put it in practice when you are doing your daily work.”

UNMISS Acting State Coordinator Numa Shams urged trainees to rise to the challenge of “correcting” prisoners’ behaviour.

“Your job is to support people so that they become corrected and become productive citizens for their state, changing the behavior of a person during his/her stay in your facility,” Ms. Shams said.

Topics covered will include prison inspection, supervisory skills, classification and segregations of prisoners, UN Minimum Standard Rules for treatment of prisoners, prison escapes and searches, Universal Declaration on Human Rights, prison riots and gender-based violence.
