Dear SDP,

Please be concerned about this issue for the welfare of people with disabilities, especially those who are in the prison.

Since I come to know about the abuse against prisoners with disabilities and elderly from the overseas website, I am writing this letter to express my concern.

I do not know how the prisoners with disabilities are treated by prison officers. Hopefully, Singapore Prison should be able to clarify about it.

Even as Singapore’s living standard improves, the standard of the prison service should also improve. It would be nice if independent board can access to the prison service for evaluating the standard of the prison service. Thanks.
