Prisoners in Dubai have received Dh6 million in financial aid.

The Dubai Police, charitable organisations and philanthropists offered the assistance.

The amount helped bail inmates; support prisoners’ families; pay documentation fees; offer medical treatment; buy airline tickets; and pay off outstanding blood money.

The aid also sponsored female inmates' children’s daily needs; Eid clothing; school supplies; and gifts during Eid. The assistance also covered TOEFL test fees.

Brigadier Ali Mohammed Al Shamali, Director of the General Department of Correctional and Punitive Establishments, said: "The annual programmes, aids and initiatives of the department reflect the Dubai Police's concept of prisons as a place of reformation rather than punishment.”

The officer stressed that the department has adopted a “path of tolerance, coexistence and benevolence” to give prisoners a second chance.
