  Norway to rent Dutch prisons to cut convict queue

  Norway plans to rent prison space in the Netherlands as the queue of convicts awaiting cells is growing and renovation work at Norwegian jails is expected to cut capacity, the justice ministry said on Monday.

  挪威司法部周一表示,計画在荷蘭租用監獄,因等待入監的罪犯正大排長龍,而監獄的整修預計會減少容納人數。

  "At the moment, the queue is at 1,300 custodial sentences, and there is a great demand for detention space," it said in a statement. "The Netherlands has already leased prison capacity to Belgium for several years."

  「此時,有1300名被判入獄的人龍,監禁空間的需求非常龐大。」其透過聲明表示。「荷蘭已經將監獄租給比利時數年了。」

  Norwegian prisons are known for their relatively humane treatment of inmates, with non-violent offenders often held in open prisons with some free personal movement, jobs, recreation facilities and focus on rehabilitation.

  挪威囚犯以獲得相對人道的待遇着稱,非暴力罪犯通常拘留在開放式監獄中,有一些自由的個人活動、工作、娛樂設施,讓其改過向善。

  A deal for several hundred prison places would allow Norway to avoid overcrowding and maintain its standards while prison renovation work costing up to 4.4 billion crowns ($700 million) is carried out.

  此一收容數百人的監獄宿位合約,能讓挪威避免監獄爆滿,並在整修期間維持水準,整修工程預計最高花費44億克朗(7億美元)。

  The Nordic country’s incarceration rate is around 72 for each 100,000 people, about a tenth of the level in the United States, and its re-offending rate of around 20 percent is among the lowest in the world.

  挪威的監禁率為每十萬人有72人坐牢,大概是美國的10分之1,再犯罪率大約是20%,為世界最低。
