The young persons offenders unit was moved from the Corradino Correctional Facility to Mtahleb

They met the young inmates who very happily seemed to be settling down in this new environment which has more light and fresh air. Some of the young offenders are even keen to help in the cooking, whilst others showed an interest in gardening and art. The authorities are currently working on a new rehabilitation program which will promote positive behaviour change in the young offender in custody, whilst also preparing the young person for eventual integration in the community.
