Ukraine kicks off ‘big sale’ of about a hundred prisons

KOTSIUBYNSKE: Ukrainian justice ministry on Thursday begun a drive to sell off its prisons, an ambitious project meant to help finance new jails for the country’s ageing penitentiary system.
Over the next 10 years the justice ministry plans to sell about a hundred prisons. “We are starting a big sale of prisons,” Ukraine’s Justice Minister Denys Malyuska told journalists in the yard of Irpin Penal Center in Kiev region.
The jail was the first lot in the auction that will start in the coming weeks.(AFP)
