Rome, January 8 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano said Tuesday Italy should be ashamed by the
condemnation of its prison system from the European Court of
Human Rights.
Earlier Tuesday, the court condemned Italy for inhumane and
degrading treatment of prisoners by detaining them in crammed
cells.
The judgement is a call for Italy to improve conditions,
said Napolitano, "and is a mortifying confirmation of the
inability of our state to ensure basic rights of inmates
awaiting trial and the execution of sentence".
The president cited prison conditions in his end-of-year
address to the nation on December 31, calling for alternative
penalties to jail time to ease the "anguished reality" of an
"uncivilised situation that must be uprooted".
