More than 70 of the 80 Flemish prison directors have signed an urgent letter about the “unsustainable situation” in the prisons, addressed to Minister of Justice Vincent Van Quickenborne (Open VLD). According to them, overpopulation must be tackled urgently, because in this way human rights are threatened. This can be read in Het Nieuwsblad and Gazet van Antwerpen on Friday.
