This is quite concerning.

The prisons in Malaysia, particularly in Selangor and Kuala Lumpur, have become so full that there are not enough places for any more inmates.

According to Malay Mail, this was reported by Selangor and Federal Territory Kuala Lumpur Prisons director, Abd Kadir Rais, who added that the prisons have exceeded the capacity limit by 3,700.

With spaces available for 8,200 inmates, he said that the Sungai Buloh Prison, Kajang Prison, Kajang Women’s Prison and Puncak Alam Correction Centre are now accommodating 11,900 inmates.

“A total of 2,400 prison enforcement personnel are being deployed to control the prisoners and maintain order in the prisons,” he said.

“Perhaps the criminal justice agencies could consider allowing offenders with mild punishments to perform community service while being monitored.”

Kadir also suggested that other agencies in the country related to criminal justice should collaborate with each other and work on reducing the number of people being imprisoned. This would hopefully solve the current issue of having overpacked prisons.

Who knew that Malaysia would run out of spaces in our prison? 3,700 over the capacity limit is a lot! What do you think of this issue? Let us know in the comments below.
