    (ANSAmed) - NUORO, JANUARY 16 - The first regional center for migrant repatriation (CPR) in Sardinia will open in the former Macomer jail on January 20. The former jail has been renovated and ''starting Monday the facilities will be operating and able to host about 50 people, but on completion it will have a 100-bed capacity,'' said Macomer deputy mayor Rossana Ledda.

    She added that ''we do not know if anyone will arrive on Monday or whether some days will be needed to see the first migrants. The town council has worked a great deal in recent years for the opening of the center and will work so that there are positive economic effects on the city. One firm has been awarded the contract for internal services: cafeteria, laundry, cleaning, and infirmary. All this creates jobs and restores vitality'' to the area. She noted that the prefect's office had said it would provide security forces to ensure the safety and peace of mind of the town's inhabitants.(ANSAmed).
