Politicians "on their feet": The so-called Kosovo is being offered to "rent" a prison
The proposal of Denmark sent to the so-called Kosovo raised quite dust among the politicians. Namely, Denmark wants to rent a prison for its convicts in Kosovo.Source: B92
According to Danish Radio, the country is very close to reaching an agreement with the Pristina authorities on renting a Kosovo prison to Danish convicts. The agreement was drawn up, as it is further stated, by the Danish government, opposition parties of both political wings (left and right), and the Administration of Danish Prisons.
It is predicted that up to 1.000 prisons will be missing in Danish prisons by 2025, and the agreement is designed to solve these problems.
"One of the advantages of this dispute is that prisoners do not have to be re-socialized to return to society, because they do not have to be in Denmark after that. Therefore, we can conveniently relocate this whole group so that they serve elsewhere," Socialist Democratic Minister of Justice Nick Hækkerup said for Danish radio.
However, the two pro-government parties oppose the agreement, saying it is not a way to solve Denmark's problem, and fears control of those prisons in terms of human rights violations.
They also say that Kosovo prisons and their administration are known for corruption, violence between prisoners and poorly trained staff.
