President's office defends record on prison reform

Rome, April 9 - Italian President Giorgio Napolitano "has taken every opportunity to denounce the unsustainability" of prison conditions, his office told a meeting of prison workers Tuesday. The message, sent by the president's secretary-general, called for a penal system that is instead "more in line with Constitutional principles". Donato Marra's message was delivered to the national council of the union of penitentiary police. The statement added that Napolitano has fought for reforms to bring Italian prisons into line with European standards and to make them more humane.
