Prisoner Rape in the News


Throughout the past three decades, Just Detention International has been committed to speaking the truth about prisoner rape - highlighting the facts that sexual abuse in detention is devastating to its victims and almost wholly preventable. As part of this effort, we continue to write op-ed pieces and letters-to-the-editor, and to offer interviews for news stories about incidents of prisoner rape.
