Jail launches distant video chat service for inmates
    2018-February-8  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THANKS to a remote video chat system launched recently, three inmates at Shenzhen Prison saw their families remotely Monday, 10 days before the Chinese New Year, sznews.com reported.

Chen was one of the first inmates to meet his family via the video chat system. His wife contacted Shenzhen Prison several days ago, asking the jail police to help her child who has begun getting scared at night and suffers from epilepsy after not seeing his father for a long time.

The mother asked if the jail police could help her arrange a meeting for Chen and his sick son in an attempt to give the boy comfort. Chen’s family lives far away from the prison, which makes a face-to-face meeting infeasible in such a short time.

The prison authority contacted the judiciary department in the city where the wife and son were living and arranged for a remote video meeting for them.

Chen had a video chat with his son Monday afternoon. Chen was so thrilled to see his son in the video that he kept shedding tears. The inmate had not seen his child since he was put behind bars.

The prison has adopted multiple ways to inform prisoners’ family members — many of whom are poor, unemployed or live far away — of the regulations and application process.

The application procedure is simple. The prisoners’ families can lodge their application through http://ychj.gdsf.gov.cn or on the public WeChat accounts of Guangdong’s judiciary system and Shenzhen Prison: “广东司法行政” and “深圳监狱.” Applications can also be made in person at judiciary departments of all levels.

However, the video meetings can only be arranged within Guangdong Province for now.

Also, one remote video meeting will count as one face-to-face visit. Families who are going to meet the inmates are required to register with local judiciary departments with valid documents and certificates before application.

Those who are late for or fail to attend the arranged meetings will not be able to have another video meeting arranged for the same month. Also, prisoners will be banned from using the distant video system for three to six months if they commit any form of violation during the meetings.
