With visitation privileges suspended in jails due to the COVID-19 pandemic, persons deprived of liberties (PDLs) at the Misamis Oriental Provincial Jail in Cagayan de Oro City can now communicate with their loved ones online through E-dalaw.
In E-dalaw, a webcam serves as a camera and microphone while everything is being closely monitored by jail officials. Each inmate is allowed only a maximum 10 minutes to talk to their loved ones and e-dalaw sessions are pre-arranged.
E-dalaw has already been regularly implemented in various jails in the province. Below are photos of El Salvador City Jail.
