  • All News Items- Speech by Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence Alan Shatter TD, Launch of the Irish Prison Service Irish Human Rights Commission Human Rights Training Programme
    basic rights as a human Ignorance of the law or of best practice in this area is not and can not be used as an excuse for the denial of human rights The Irish Prison Service has a long and proud tradition of providing safe secure custody for prisoners committed to its care by the Courts and for treating all those in its custody with dignity and respect The Irish Prison Service both management and staff should never lose sight of this responsibility and obligation Having said that in common with most prison systems ensuring that you have 100 successful compliance is not easy to achieve and it has been the case that the Service has been found wanting on occasion The Inspector of Prisons Judge Michael Reilly who is with us today has in his many prison inspection reports had occasion to highlight human rights concerns in the past His detailed report on St Patrick s Institution early this year which was a cause of substantial concern to me is an example of this In his Report the Inspector commented that a culture existed that led to the human rights of some children and young adults being ignored or violated As I have said in the past we are fortunate to have an Inspector of Prisons who brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the post from his national and international work He provides a valuable independent and reforming oversight of our prisons which I greatly value The Irish Prison Service has shown that as a service it is willing to listen to the constructive criticism it has received from the Inspector and others and is prepared to effect changes in order to positively react to and address the issues raised Such change has however been in many cases reactive implementing the recommendations made by others where appropriate What is unique about this particular initiative is that it is proactive The Irish Prison Service has identified a specific training need and in conjunction with the Human Rights Commission has developed a bespoke training programme specifically designed for staff working in our prisons I am particularly pleased to note that this programme has been developed as a partnership between the Irish Prison Service and the Human Rights Commission As many of you will be aware since 2008 the Human Rights Commission here in Ireland has undertaken an intensive programme of human rights education and training aimed at Civil and Public Servants Over 800 officials across the Civil and Public Service have benefited from this training Tailored training has been provided to the Gardaí to local authority staff and is now being delivered to our prison staff I am aware that this programme has been the most far reaching and collaborative programme of work to date This unique training programme as I have said earlier consists of an in depth intensive tailored 5 day training programme has been delivered to the 21 Human Rights Trainers and I will be presenting
