Koror Jail

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Koror Jail is a correctional facility located in the Republic of Palau. It is the only facility of its kind in Palau, and it is located on the island of Koror in a governmental center between buildings that house federal offices and the Palau National Congress. The 17,000 square feet (1,600 m2) jail consists of two structures built in the 1970s and a third constructed in the 1990s, and it is surrounded by an eight-foot wire mesh fence and an eight-foot concrete wall; a wall from the neighboring Ministry of Justice building also serves as a jail barrier.[1]

By 2001, Koror Jail has become a tourist destination thanks to inmates who create and sell elaborate wooden storyboards at a retail facility located on the jail's grounds.[2]
