Interior Minister Nouhad Machnouk Friday launched a new European Union-funded program that will establish a juvenile detention center in Warwar.The center is expected to undergo renovation for the next 18 months, after which juvenile detainees will be relocated from Roumieh prison – where young people mix with adult prisoners – to what is slated to be an environment that better complies with international standards for juvenile detention."We showed this [support] again at the Rome conference, where [EU foreign policy chief Federica] Mogherini pledged another 50 million euros [around $62 million] in support to the [Lebanese Army] and ISF," Lassen said of the Rome II conference that took place March 15 and aimed to garner support for Lebanon's security apparatuses.She added that reforming the Lebanese justice system had long been a priority of the EU.
