Web Desk: In the world of full of terrorism, violence and threats, there is a country on this planet that is free from violence. In a country like ours, where hooligans and criminals pose as pious souls, all we need is someone to throw them behind bars.
This European country is Netherlands. In 2013, this country had only 19 prisoners because their country is that safe. After the five years the nation struggled to find people to put behind bars. As five more are slated to close their doors by the end of the summer, the country is in a fix.
Shutting prison means almost 2,000 people will lose jobs and only 700 out of them will be transferred to other roles available to the government, it also means that they have succeeded as a system, as a government and as citizen.
Netherlands has been observing a steady drop in the crime since 2004 and it is all good and merry on that side of the world. The problem of empty prisons has gotten to point where last year the country had to import prisoners from Norway to keep their facilities full and system running.
