1,000 Lifers in Greek Prisons

keli1Greece seems to have the largest number of lifers than any other European country, recording an unprecedented record of 1,000.
Other European countries have only a few dozen lifers, such as the Netherlands – with a population of 17 million – which has only 90 lifers and Germany which has 140. Other European countries have only a small number, except for Italy which has 1,600.
The new Penal Code which will be submitted to a vote in the Greek Parliament provides a limit on the imposition of life imprisonment.
The imposition of life sentence and the fact that this is the maximum sentence for most offenses – mostly economic offenses in recent years – has increased the number of life prisoners, who have reached 1,000.
