Norway has opened “the most humane prison in the world.” Construction lasted 10 years and a cost of 252 million dollars (1 million was spent on paintings and photographs adorn the walls). It’s all consistent with the principles of Norwegian penal system – fix and integrate into society with the help of humanity, the same prison should be as similar to the outside world.
The complex has a recording studio, cottage for family visits, well-equipped gym. This prison is not for those who are improperly parked, among others – drug dealers, murderers and rapists.
Statistics suggest that only 20% of prisoners in Norway again jailed for two years after release, whereas in the UK and the USA – 50-60%.
