Prison inmates to be granted access to Skype, ministry says


The Justice Ministry has announced that all prison inmates will have access to Skype to communicate with relatives and friends.

Speaking to a local radio Praktorio 104.9 FM, Justice Minister Nikos Paraskevopoulos described the initiative as “pioneering” by Greek standards and part of the government’s wider effort to modernize the country’s penitentiary system, despite the lack of resources.
