Site for new jail ready for construction
The site where the Koror jail will be relocated is ready for construction, according Division of Capital Improvement Project (CIP) manager Brian Melairei,
In 2013, Palau President Tommy Remengesau issued Executive Order (EO) No. 347 which creates a taskforce to formulate a plan for the relocation of the already crowded jail in Koror.
The current jail is overcrowded with inmates and in such poor condition. The relocation of the jail is also needed as it sits in the middle of the most populous area of the Republic, within short distance of restaurants, hotels and other places that tourists frequent.
