Brussels, February 21 - Construction of new jails
is not the answer to Italy's problems with prison overcrowding,
the Council of Europe's high commissioner for human rights said
Thursday.
"If you put everyone in prison, for any offence, the result
is overcrowding, and horrible conditions," said Nils Muiznieks.
"The construction of new prisons is not the solution," he
added.
"For this you need to develop alternative measures" to jail
sentences.
Italian President Giorgio Napolitano has also strongly
denounced Italian prison conditions, calling them
"unconstitutional" while urging politicians and voters to make
prison reform a priority political issue.
"No one wants to deny the gravity of the emergency,"
Napolitano has said.
