Rome, January 11 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti on
Friday proposed a measure allocating 16 million euros for
prisoner work programs that should relieve overcrowding in
Italian prisons.
"We need structural reforms to solve the issue of prison
overcrowding, which has recently been condemned by the European
Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg," Monti said in a note,
pointing to the government's December 2011 decree making house
arrest an option for prisoners serving their last 18 months.
A bill on alternatives to incarceration has yet to be
passed, he said.
"Meanwhile, we must give prisoners some hope, because
several studies show the rate of repeat offences is
significantly lowered when they have been given alternative
measures or been allowed to work," the premier said.
Justice Minister Paola Severino and Economy Minister
Vittorio Grilli submitted the measure, which is to be financed
under the so-called Stability Law, according to the note.
