Fifty Prisoners in Norway Can Be Released Due to Strike

The last time when a similar strike happened, a number of prisoners  had been released writes TV2.

A group of prison officers at a prison in western Norway prepare to go on strike on Monday. The management of the prison tries to decide whether some of the inmates should be released or transferred to other prisons. Previously, this had serious consequences.

The prison has a low security with 90 inmates. In a press release, the management points out that Correctional service must have a plan for emergencies such as fire, where the inmates are to be moved.

Between 30 and 40 inmates will be transferred to other prisons, while between 50 and 60 will be released in the case of a strike.
