  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,计画在荷兰租用监狱,因等待入监的罪犯正大排长龙,而监狱的整修预计会减少容纳人数。

  "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."

  「此时,有1300名被判入狱的人龙,监禁空间的需求非常庞大。」其透过声明表示。「荷兰已经将监狱租给比利时数年了。」

  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.

  挪威囚犯以获得相对人道的待遇着称,非暴力罪犯通常拘留在开放式监狱中,有一些自由的个人活动、工作、娱乐设施,让其改过向善。

  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.

  此一收容数百人的监狱宿位合约,能让挪威避免监狱爆满,并在整修期间维持水準,整修工程预计最高花费44亿克朗(7亿美元)。

  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.

  挪威的监禁率为每十万人有72人坐牢,大概是美国的10分之1,再犯罪率大约是20%,为世界最低。
