Prisons in Albania

Like in many other countries, prisoners in Albania are separated into remanded prisoners (in pre-trial detention) and convicted prisoners (whose sentences are being executed). The basic three types of prisons are closed, semi-open or open prisons. A difference is made between ordinary closed prisons and high security prisons. Many prisons have separate blocks (wings) for women and some also for children (juveniles), but there are also prisons for women or children alone.[1] Prisoners themselves are allowed to elect a council of re education, which is used to enforce laws[2]
