Improving conditions in Kenya prisons

The UNODC Counter-Piracy Programme aims to develop the capacity of States in the East Africa/Indian Ocean Region to prosecute piracy suspects arrested by their own law enforcement authorities or transferred from the authorities of other states. Under the Counter Piracy Programme, support is provided to four key areas of the criminal justice systems of prosecuting states: Police, Courts, Prosecutors and Prisons.

The initiatives of the UNODC in Kenyan prisons should be considered in conjunction with its Police, Prosecutions and Courts Programmes, which have been operating in parallel to the Kenya Prisons Programme since May 2009. Together, they have the shared aim of ensuring that suspected pirates tried in Kenya are provided fair and humane treatment, in accordance with international standards and within a sound framework of the rule of law.
