On a visit to Hermon prison (150 kilometers from Tel Aviv) on Wednesday (19), the Brazilian Chief Justice was greeted by Commissioner Asher Vaknin, the main authority in the country's prison system, and visited unit facilities and their programs, which involve education , work and support for prisoners.

In one of the pavilions, the head of the STF was received with a welcome poster made by the inmates themselves, who are completing the final stage of their sentences for domestic violence, one of them is Brazilian. He also met a space in which the daily living of each detainee with a dog, whose care depends entirely on the prisoner, is one of the main tools in the service of preparation for release from prison.
