Reform and Rehabilitation Institution of Sorman

The Director of the Reform and Rehabilitation Institution of Sorman, Tariq Farhat confirmed the escape of 15 inmates from the institution on Thursday during their return from the Public Prosecution Office.

Farahat clarified in a press statement that unidentified persons hijacked the prisoner transport vehicle during their return to the prison, adding that four of the prisoners had surrendered voluntarily while the search for the other deserters continues.

Hundreds of prisoners had escaped the Reform and Rehabilitation Institution of Ein Zara early September last, after rioting erupted inside the institution during the armed clashes in Tripoli.
