Charles observing juvenile justice system in Chile
Junior minister Pearnel Charles Jr is now in Chile observing the functioning of the Chilean juvenile justice system.
Charles, who is leading a delegation to the South America country, is also scheduled to exchange best practices to enhance the operation of correctional facilities in both countries.
The visit is the second phase of the initiative, and the focus of the tour will be on case management for young offenders.
It is anticipated that in the third phase, the Chilean government will send representatives to Jamaica to work within juvenile correctional centres.
