Death Penalty Project Looks at Mental Disorder and Criminal Cases

The Bar Association of Belize held a seminar on linkages between Mental Disorder and criminal cases.  It was hosted by the Death Penalty Project. Barrister Joe Middleton and Pravis Jabbar Co-Executive Director of the project commented on the seminar.



A percentage of prisoners in the Central Prison of Belize are housed there awaiting arraignment and some await their turn at the court for years. Pravis Jabbar commented on how the delay can affect the mental health of the persons awaiting trial.


The Mental Disorder and the Law seminar ends tomorrow.
