Beninese MPs from the Committee on Laws, Administration and Human Rights, undertook outreach visits to a number of Benin’s penal institutions on 5-10 September 2016.

The visits aimed to strengthen links between the elected representatives and local populations, and were supported by AWEPA as part of the Strategic Partnership with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in consortium with the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD).

The different delegations taking part in the activities visited police stations, prisons, appeal courts and tribunals across Benin.
