Many institutions in France, including the International Prisons Observatory (OIP), warned that the epidemic posed a great risk to prisoners due to the overcrowding of prisoners. In France, 48 prisoners have been diagnosed with Covid-19 so far.
The French Department of the International Prison Observatory (OIP), the Bar Association for the Protection of Prisoner Rights (A3D), the Union of Judges ‘Union (SM) and the Union of French Lawyers’ Union (SAF) demand that prisoners be taken under protection.
The institutions in question want to release prisoners whose detention is about to expire, while others are given hand-cleaning gels and masks.
