ROXAS City, Capiz – Twenty-five inmates of the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP) here graduated from the carpentry course offered by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).
According to Chief Inspector Abner Zamora, Roxas City Jail warden, the inmates received National Certificates (NC) Level II from the TESDA provincial in a recent graduation rite at Brgy. San Jose here.
Zamora added that 90 percent of the graduate-inmates are facing illegal drugs cases in court.

He stressed that they treat the inmates as human beings but with certain limitations as they are facing charges in court.
