The Police investigator now a rape in the Nyborg state prison, informs Sunniva Pedersen-Reng, communications consultant, Fyns Police to Ekstra Bladet.

The particular episode happened the previous weekend - so 29. February/1. march:

- It is under investigation. There is currently no accused in the case, says the brief from the kommunikationskonsulenten.

She will not disclose where, under what circumstances or whether there was one or multiple perpetrators of the abuse.

The Police have not informed on the matter. Against it Fængselsforbundet, which was about the alarming conditions in the country's prisons tells that the rape took place:

'General, we are seeing that the situation is the pressure. It also applies to the internal security between the inmates. Strong prisoners are springing up and exploit the weak prisoners.

as late as the past weekend was a prisoner roughly raped by fellow inmates in Nyborg Prison, and there was a large brawl with a stabbing in Enner Mark Prison', says the letter, which Fængselsforbundet sent for To the Justice minister, Nick Hækkerup, and the Parliament's legal affairs Committee.

the letter calls on Fængselsforbundet to political action in order to ensure a decent working environment and a safe environment for employees and inmates in Prison, because you are in a situation with fewer prison guards and several inmates.

Fængselsforbundet is deeply concerned about the situation:

It was the goal of the flerårsaftalen in 2017 to strengthen the conditions in prisons. Nevertheless, the development in the opposite direction. Prisons and pre-trial detention centres are characterised by overcrowding, staff shortages and poor working environment.

The average capacity utilisation has since 2017 remained at 100 percent. That is to say, to all the cells in prisons and pre-trial detention centres, has constantly been in use for over two years in a row.

It is not possible to re-open seats in closed prisons and pre-trial detention centres, since there is no manpower to operated them. Despite flerårsaftalens aim to increase the staffing levels are the number of prison guards namely to shrink. Alone since 2017 there are gone 200 cops.

to get the basic operation to run, there is therefore cut completely to the bone, and the schedules hang only along with the use of overtime – including imposed overtime, where fængselsbetjentene ordered in the work, says the letter.
