Abu Dhabi: Products crafted by prison inmates in Abu Dhabi went on show at an exhibition in Dubai, thanks to the support given by the Reformative and Punitive institutions.

The Permanent Exhibition at Cassells Al Barsha Hotel in Dubai will showcase the handicrafts created by prisoners while serving terms for various offences.

While opening the exhibition, Colonel Saif Mattar Al Za’abi, Director of Reformative and Punitive Institutions at the Abu Dhabi Police, thanked the partners in the private sector for shouldering their corporate social responsibility to help the prisoners enhance various work skills.

Prisoners are given training by the police in different trades to reintegrate them into normal social life and empower them to earn an income once released.
