Israeli prisons significantly more crowded than in the West, official report says
Prisoners get only 2.9 square meters of cell space per person, compared to 8.8 square meters in the West, according to the Public Defender's Office, leading to friction and limiting rehabilitation prospects.
Israeli inmates are allotted roughly a third of the living space the average prisoner gets in the West, according to an annual report released by the Public Defender’s Office, which concluded that Israeli prisons are too crowded.
