YOUNG OFFENDERS... STILL SHACKLED SLEEPING IN A PRISON

WHY THEY ARE HANCUFFED IF STF - The Supreme Court allows the use only in cases of resistance, fear of escape, assault?

Internal Affairs will investigate the reason for the use of handcuffs.
The
Pastoral Care of Children in the Espirito Santo,  had new complaints of alleged irregularities in the Home Care Unit (Unai) in Maruípe, Vitoria, where juvenile offenders go before heading to the Socio-educational Unit.
Photos
released on Wednesday morning (4) show teenagers sleeping handcuffed.
According to Father
Xavier, representative of the Pastoral, "there are reports that they sleep this way."
The governor,
through his counsel, confirmed that forwarded the complaints to the Ministry of Justice. The governor ordered an investigation and research with immediate return to his office.
According to the
director of the Institute of Socio-Educational Services of Espirito Santo, the initial analysis of the images points to the improper use of handcuffs.
