"Prison Should Soon Be Full Of Oligarchy"
Governor: Prison early release scheme works
THE prison governor has defended an early release scheme after two inmates serving sentences at La Moye attacked a man after being let out on licence.
Bill Millar, speaking as the two men await sentencing for an attack in which a man was hit over the head with a bottle and threatened with a knife, said that only four out of 21 prisoners released early from prison were recalled last year.
In 2009 – when tagging was in force – one out of 16 prisoners released early was recalled for breaching a licence. Early release licences – which allow inmates to leave prison before their sentence is up if they abide by certain conditions such as a curfew – were introduced last year as an alternative to tagging, which was deemed too expensive.
Home Affairs Minister Ian Le Marquand said that he believed that the current system worked well and was much tougher than in the UK.
