He said: “I am determined and insistent that we are going to start conjugal visits, and some persons ask me why, but we must treat (incarcerated persons) in a humane way.

Following the announcement, Human Rights Advocacy group, known as ‘Stand Up for Jamaica’, endorsed the plans to introduce conjugal visits in correctional facilities.
