Jails bracing for influx of convicts

SLOVAK jails are preparing for an increased number of convicts as a result of the Justice Ministry's proposed "three strikes and you're out" measure that will send repeat offenders to jail for life without parole.

Oto Lobodas, general director of the country's prison guards organisation said that the Slovak jails that house the most serious criminals are currently filled to 70 per cent of their capacity, which leaves a lot of space for more prisoners.
