Overcrowded prisons still an issue in Slovenia

By: J.S., STA

The Prison Administration said that overcrowdedness was still an issue in Slovenian prisons as it responded to a recent Council of Europe (CoE) report which said that Slovenia has successfully addressed the issue.

Slovenia’s prisons are currently 104.7% full, whereas the CoE report said that in 2021 only 86% of prison capacities were full because the CoE data referred to 31 January 2021, when prisons were indeed less full due to Covid measures.
