Prisoners to spend Spring Festival at home
    2018-February-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

NEARLY 1,300 inmates from 300 prisons across the country will be allowed to go home to spend the Spring Festival with their families, an official from the Bureau of Prison Administration under the Ministry of Justice said.

The ministry recently issued a notice to prisons across the country to allow prisoners to visit families during the Spring Festival, the news website cyol.com reported.

In Shanghai, 10 inmates from four prisons will be allowed to visit their families at home, an official from the city’s prison administrative bureau said.

These prisoners are obligated to fulfill lots of conditions, such as good behavior in prison, completion of over half of their prison term and not endangering society after leaving prison, the official said.

They are required to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet during the leave, and if the bracelet is removed, police will know immediately, the official said. Prisoners have to report their daily activities to local police.

Apart from Shanghai, Si-chuan and Shaanxi provinces also approved certain prisoners for family visits during the Spring Festival this year, with Sichuan OKing about 260 prisoners and Shaanxi more than 100.

China’s prison law and relative regulations allow prisoners to leave prisons to meet families while meeting certain conditions, but because of safety risks, some prisons have halted such privileges in recent years.

After investigations, the Minister of Justice Zhang Jun said recently that prisons across the country could gradually push ahead the practice after making good preparations for preventing possible safety risks.

Prisoners going home to meet families have been considered an effective means to expedite their reform, and the ministry has recently issued a document promoting the practice in the prison system reform.
