Minister of Justice: The government is determined to eradicate  corruption and the criminal subculture in the country`s penitentiary  institution

ArmInfo.The Armenian government is determined to expand the capabilities of the penal system, guarantee the rights of employees, as well as to increase the  attractiveness of work in the country's penitentiary institution.  This was announced today, October 21, at the event dedicated to the  100th anniversary of the RA Criminal Correction Service, said the  Minister of Justice of the country Rustam Badasyan.

<It is indisputable that the New Armenia created new prerequisites  for the development of the penal system. The protection of human  rights, the rule of law, humanism, unbending will, aimed at reaching  out to a citizen isolated from society - these are the key guidelines  that should become an integral part of your daily activities. And in  order to achieve this goal, it is necessary to eradicate corruption  and the criminal subculture>, the minister said, at the same time  thanking  head of the penitentiary service Arthur Goyunyan and the  penitentiary staff for making crucial changes in this sector.

According to Badasyan, after serving a sentence in a penitentiary  institution, a person should be ready to return to society as a  conscious citizen, and for this purpose, persons in prisons should be  provided with the opportunity to receive education, work, spiritual  and cultural development, as well as strengthen effective  communication with the outside world. To achieve this goal, it will  be necessary to constantly monitor and implement the best  international practices.

Badasyan also added that the perennial problems existing in the  penitentiary institution have become fertile soil for the spread of  criminal culture and corruption.

In conclusion, the Minister of Justice assured that in addition to  protecting the rights of persons in custody, the government is  determined to develop the capabilities of the correctional  institution and guarantee the rights of employees of the correctional  institution, as well as to increase the attractiveness of the service  in the correctional institution
