DAVAO CITY (Mindanao Examiner / 29 Jul) – A P50-million facility that will house youth offenders will soon rise in the southern Philippine city of Davao.

Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said the new reformatory center would be built in the remote Marilog District. “I will build the center in Marilog to ensure that these youth offenders will not escape and will surely reflect on the sins they commit in life,” Duterte said.

Duterte said the facility will also have a school so detainees will have an opportunity to learn while under correction program.

“Youth offenders who stay in the street get killed so it is better for them to stay in a facility that will protect them,” he said. (Romy Bwaga)
